Penclawdd vs Pirates 14-17

A late result coming through from last week-end....

The Pirates won their first victory of the season in a classic account away at Penclawdd.  Both teams lined up on a large pitch with a neutral referee who helped set the tone for a cracking encounter.  The whole team stepped up to the mark to deliver a first victory over Penclawdd for many a year.  Key to the victory was a lot more organised defence and a combative pack. The Pirates pushed out to a 7-17 lead with a few minutes to go thanks to a brace of tries from Matt Gully and Will finishing off a great team try; Owen popping over the conversion into the wind.  The hosts struck back with a consolation try in the last minute, but it was too little, too late.  The match even featured a yellow card for each side!

Player of the Week for his two tries.  It was nice to see the team celebrating like they'd won the grand slam after each try.  Let's see if we can have a few more weeks like this.
