Bonus point win for Otters
2:00pm Thursday 4th October 2012 in Sport
Narberth’s good form continued as they secured a bonus point victory over Bonymaen.
Bonymaen made a positive start as they showed good ball retention and a work ethic that kept the Otters on their toes, but they allowed a move to break down as Adrian Killa kicked ahead and half back partner Rhys Roberts did well to score an unconverted try from 30 metres out.
But Bonymaen soon responded with a good try from winger Robbie Ford which experienced No 10 Paul Warlow converted before the Otters grabbed their second try after James Russell missed a penalty but then fired home the simple conversion when full back Johnny Morgan cleverly broke the shackles to put Killa in at the posts.
Bonymaen were soon level at 12-all when a missed Otter tackle allowed flanker Daniel Joseph to pound over for an unconverted try but Narberth were seven points to the good at the end of an entertaining first half as prop Sion Lloyd put livewire flanker Lawrence Reynolds in at the clubhouse corner and No 10 Rhys Roberts converted superbly from the touch line.
Roberts also landed an early second half penalty which was soon cancelled out by Warlow but the Otters regained the initiative when Roberts added another three points and then converted an excellent try set up by skipper Steve Martin and scored by Johnny Morgan, who vied with Roberts and Reynolds for the man of the match accolade.
Bonymaen tried manfully to claw their way back but Narberth kept control on events and two more Rhys Roberts sealed the Otters deserved third success of the season
