Llanelli RFC 32 Bedwas RFC 7
Principality Welsh Premiership, Thursday 24 March 2011.
Match report by Ian Lovell (based on information found on the internet!!)
LLANELLI’S chances of sealing an end-of-season play-off place were enhanced with a comfortable bonus-point victory over Bedwas at Parc y Scarlets.
Outside-half Owen Williams twice made breaks to score Llanelli’s opening try which he also converted.
On 27 minutes Llanelli registered their second try. A quick-thinking kick-and-chase from scrum-half Justin James saw wing Lee Williams go over.
Bedwas made life harder for themselves on the half-hour when prop Matthew Petitt received a yellow card for an alleged stamp.
Bedwas tried to get back into the game but with lock James Murphy becoming the second Bedwas forward in the bin, Llanelli scored a third try as centre Nick Reynolds ran in from 40 metres out.
And, six minutes later, the home side had scored their bonus-point try with Lee Williams putting flanker Matt Gilbert over.
Bedwas didn’t give up and scored a try in injury time through Kieran Crawford, converted by Stuart Thomas whilst Llanelli’s Owen Williams was in the sin bin
