St Davids 7
Three unconverted tries were enough to give Llangwm an important win in their Pembrokeshire derby at St Davids.
The result leaves The Saints still seeking their first win after nine games.
With relegation to division six west in prospect for the bottom club at the end of the season, this was a game that Saints’ coach Fintan Godkin will have targeted as a very important match.
But they found themselves ten points down late on as excellent play by Ian Griffiths up front and Jonathan Brock in defence inspired The Wasps.
Outside centre Simon Preddy claimed the first try after some good handling, before home winger Craig Challonder had a second half effort controversially ruled out.
Full back Jonathan Brock added the second Wasps try before the Saints fought back with a Dan Lawrence try which Jack Jones converted.
Both sides had further chances before outstanding No 8 Griffiths grabbed a score as The Saints tried to attack from deep late on to leave Wasps’ coach Jeremy Brock delighted with his team’s second success of the season.
