Preseli Men win a one-point victory after clawing their way back

Crymych 20 - Tenby United 19

Rhys Beaky Davies - led Crymych fight back by exampleCrymych fought their way back from a 16-point interval deficit to edge home by a single point against Tenby United, leaving the Seasiders to collect just a losing bonus point as reward for their efforts.

But this Crymych outfit, coached by Randall Williams and with Rhys ‘Beaky’ Davies as an inspirational captain, are bonny battlers and after clawing their way back to trail by 17-19 their hard-grafting pack earned a late penalty where young fly half Jake Jenkins stayed composed and slotted the all-important three points that gave a relieved home team the narrowest of victories.

The Seasiders’ pack was very much in evidence early on and as well as setting the platform for their outside half Lloyd Thomas to control play they earned three penalties that Thomas landed alongside the conversion of a try by Luke Dedman.

But with Rhys Davies joined by scrum half Adam Foster alongside back rowers Sion Colella, Osian Davies and Aled Harries as players who caught the eye, Crymych grabbed tries by winger Alun Jenkins and No 8 Davies, one converted by Jenkins before The Seasiders fought back with another Thomas penalty.

It nicely set up a tense finale where The Preseli Men added another unconverted try by Carwyn Phillips – and then Jenkins put over that last-ditch three-pointer to score a come-back success for his relieved supporters to cheer!
