Milford Haven 14
Two converted second half tries earned Milford Haven a narrow, but deserved, win over Llandeilo at the Observatory Field.
The game had been scheduled for Llandeilo but switched at their request.
It looked as if they were the home side as they led by 13-0 at the break, thanks to tries from Chico Williams and Dan Roberts alongside a Nick Davies penalty.
But Milford stormed down the slope in the second half as Mike Cockburn, Rhys Thompson, Thomas Manning, Jamie Parr, Matthew Doncaster, Mark Wonnacott, Dewi Williams and Thomas Ilaise raised the tempo and won sufficient ball for half backs Aaron Sprowell and Tom Arnold to call the shots.
Arnold opened the Mariners' account with a try which he also converted.
He then crucially added the extras when full back Graham Badham ploughed over the line.
Milford had other chances to increase their advantage but also covered well to ensure a hard-fought victory in the final analysis.
