St Clears 12 v Aberaeron 6

For the second time this season promotion contenders St Clears and Aberaeron fought out a low-scoring affair that was hard and uncompromising but showed the strength there now is in the top half of Division Three (West) A.

Aberaeron had won 12-7 at home against The Saints in September and there was every indication that this would follow the same trend before the home side gained revenge in similar fashion and scored the only two tries in doing so.

A measure of how tight the first half was came as Aberaeron led by 3-0 thanks to a Rhodri Jenkins penalty – and he added a second three-pointer in the second period after The Saints had snatched the lead with a try by No 8 Rhodri Evans, which No 10 Dan Griffiths goaled.

At 7-6 to The Saints it was obvious that the next score would be vital and it fell to the homesters when Dan Gosling crossed the whitewash and although it went unconverted it mattered little because their defence held firm to keep them in third place’ level with Haverfordwest but having played a game more, and with Lampeter four points ahead after playing the same number of matches.
