Burry Port 33 Penybanc 0

The Tigers travelled to high flyers Burry Port on Saturday once again down to the bare bones. With only 16 players available, it was always going to be a hard slog. Banc, with Captain Tim Williams slotting in on the wing and hooker Rhodri Dennard joining him on the other wing gave it a real go however. As expected, the home side came at the visitors hard from the off. Banc, if anything showed them too much respect and stood off them in the first half. Prop Zac Rees hobbled off after 15 minutes which didn’t help the cause and Banc had to reshuffle. BP however, looked impressive and had sewn up the bonus point by half time with the score at 28-0.

Hard running centre Richard Thomas had to retire just after half time in his first action since the start of the season which left Banc facing 35 minutes with 14 men. With the crowd expecting a cricket score, the 14 men had other ideas. Led by talisman Aled Danter, The tigers really got stuck into the title contenders. Centre Tom Gale used his big frame to get the Banc on the go forward while half backs for the day Mark Tench and Owen Williams had sound games. Banc were unlucky not to get a try after spending a considerable amount of time in the BP half but gave their all for 80 minutes and were unlucky to concede a solitary second half try in the last few minutes. The boys that travelled can give themselves a huge pat on the back. With a weekend off for Super Saturday, Banc look forward to welcoming Burry Port for the return fixture in 2 weeks in what is the first of 3 home games that bring the curtain down on another season.
