South Gower 58 Penybanc 17

After 3 wins on the bounce in the opening games, hopes were high in Tigertown that the boys would continue the momentum with a visit to league leaders South Gower. Unfortunately, with some late pull outs, the task in hand was made that much more difficult with the Tigers only travelling with 16 players, forced into uncontested scrums and starting with 14 players. It was clear from the off that the Gower side were a well drilled and organised side, scoring twice in the opening quarter. In response, Banc hit back with a cracker from flanker Aled Danter. Unfortunately, the tigers were dealt another blow shortly after with the big hitting Dan Roberts coming off with a knee injury. Gower scored again a few minutes later before Banc hit back again. Centre Tom Gale used his power to go over with 3 Gower defenders on his back. Kerion Ace Added the extras. Gower again were able to utilise the one-man advantage to wrap up the bonus point as the ref blew for half time.

Half time: South Gower 24 Penybanc 12

It was more of the same second half with Gower playing a wide game looking to get their dangerous wingers on the ball as much as possible. Banc defended manfully at times, but the game went away from them with Gower scoring some great tries as the half wore on. Banc did manage to have the final say as winger Kyle Johnson cut inside his man for a lovely finish. There were some great defensive efforts with Owain Pritchard leading from the front while full back Chris Griffiths, playing out of position was the man of the match, showing great composure in attack and defence. Banc will look to lick their wounds and regroup this week as they welcome Tonna  to Tigertown.
