Scarlets hang on to win
3:00pm Thursday 11th October 2012 in Sport
Pembroke gained their expected win over eighthplaced Bynea but only by a single point as the Scarlets stayed in the top three.
This was their fourth victory of the campaign alongside one defeat.
Scarlets coach Ossie Boswell was full of praise for the opposition, whom he said were a 'very workmanlike side', but was also pleased that his team did well to hold on at the end.
He praised current youth players of the calibre of full back Mark Jones and winger Huw Owens for the way that they slotted in well.
Andrew Davies used his wealth of experience in the centre and hooker Gareth Jones, playing out of position in the back row, also featured as the Scarlets established a deserved 12-0 interval lead through tries by centre Dom Colman and winger James Skeels, one converted by Sion Dalling.
Bynea fought back with a try from Andrew Lee which Jonathan Cronin converted, before Dalling notched a Pembroke penalty.
Bynea added a second try as Jack Morgan ploughed over for Cronin to again add the extras but Pembroke refused to panic in the closing stages to earn a narrow win.
The win sees the Scarlets move within two points of league leaders Swansea Uplands.
