St Clears 26 St Davids 5

Rhodri Jones - three tries for St Clears classy centre


Player coach Gethin Bateman praised a resilient display from his St Davids side in St Clears but the visitors were undone by a classy display from home centre Rhodri Jones.

Twice in the first half Jones pounced on errors from the away side to score tries, and he completed a hat trick after the break with No 8 Tom Rees also crossing. Dan Griffiths added three conversions.
But the Pembrokeshire Saints kept battling as flanker Andrew Groves and centre George Raymond both impressed, and they got the try their play deserved when full back Rhys Morgan barged his way over in the corner late on.
“We dominated possession for large parts,” said Bateman afterwards.
“There was nothing wrong with our commitment. But we made two errors which led to tries in the first half and in those conditions it’s always going to be hard to play catch up”

Regardless, St Davids enjoyed their night afterwards with the players dressing up as elves, and chief supporter Carwyn Price donning a Santa outfit!
