Scarlets Cup: Haverfordwest 74 Burry Port 17

HAVERFORDWEST Ladies RFC started their Scarlets Cup campaign with a thumping win over a spirited Burry Port side on Sunday.

Haverfordwest were a bit rusty in the early stages, having not played for six weeks but they then started scoring on a regular basis with a young but very exciting back line.

The game had to be played at St Davids as the pitches in Haverfordwest were unplayable, and the ‘home’ side had tries from Nina Colville (4), Delyth Foster, Emma Evans, Lyn Egelstaff, Emily Carrington, Jo Price, Awen Prysor, Jessica Charles, Rachel Harding - and Price added seven conversions.

The pack won good ball with Lyn Egelstaff supreme in the line out, and the back row of Emily Banner, captain Nina Colville and player of the match Awen Prysor set up a dominant display.

Haverfordwest coach Ben John said: “We were a bit rusty as there were some new combinations being used, but as the game went on we started to gel and scored some lovely tries.

“I must thank St Davids RFC and their staff and for the use of their facilities, and also to Man-Up UK who were our match sponsors.”

Training is held between 6pm-7pm for under 15s and 18s on a Monday night and between 7pm-8.30pm for the ladies. All new players are welcome. Training is currently being held at Tasker Milward astro.
