Penclawdd prepare well for Gors crunch
PENCLAWDD maintained their 100 per cent record in division three west with a 21-7 win at home to winless bottom club Llanybydder.
Wing Kris Corbisiero scored two tries and young prop Daniel Tucker one, while fly-half Dan Guarneri landed two penalties.
Next Saturday Penclawdd make the short journey to third-placed Gorseinon, who lost 24-20 at fifth-placed Tycroes, who have lost only once and have a game in hand on the fours sides above them.
A last-gasp try earned Tycroes victory.
A chargedown led to an early Gorseinon try. Tycroes responded with a Carwyn Richards penalty.
Tycroes edged 10-5 ahead when centre Steff Jones finished off a long-distance try, but Gorseinon were soon 13-10 in front via a penalty and unconverted try.
The game swung back Tycroes's way when fly-half Dean Bromham threw a dummy before scoring at the posts. Richards's conversion put Tycroes 17-13 ahead, but again Gorseinon replied with a pushover try to regain a 20-17 lead.
In the dying minutes the Tycroes pack sucked in the Gorseinon forwards, enabling Steff Jones to register the all important winning try, again converted by Richards.
Tenby United remain top after their 12-7 win at Cardigan, while Pontarddulais continued their recent winning run by beating a very lively Llandeilo outfit 25-14, with Jonathan Lloyd producing a strong defensive effort for the home team with some bone-crunching tackles.
The try-scorers for Pontarddulais were full-back Josh Goss, No. 8 Aled Thomas and second row Jonathan Hire, Lloyd kicking two penalties and two conversions.
Tumble went down 14-9 at Haverfordwest, while Llanelli Wanderers, back to something approaching full strength for the first time this season, gained only their second win so far with a 28-14 success at home to Pontyberem.
Pontyberem led 14-12 at half-time but the home side eased clear after the break, helped by the visitors having two men yellow-carded at different times.
Centre Rhydian Morgan crossed for two tries, and full-back Ashley Powell and lock Ryan Tovey scored one each. Powell landed two conversions and a penalty.
