Champs start off with a victory
REIGNING Welsh Cup champions Gowerton Year 10 kicked off their campaign with a hard-fought 18-7 win over Cwmtawe.
Confidence was high after last year's success, but Cwmtawe, who themselves had reached the quarter- final of the Welsh Cup, proved to be tough opponents.
Gowerton, captained by Swansea Schools skipper Will Jones, took the lead in the 15th minute when hooker Jordan Liney touched down, and full-back Tom Howell converted.
Howell stretched the lead with a try two minutes into the second half. He missed the conversion and Cwmtawe were very much back in the game when they crossed for a converted try in the 42nd minute.
