Division Two West:

Fishguard & Goodwick 24
Llanybydder 13

Fishguard and Goodwick completed a deserved double over bottom club Llanybydder, who played far better than their lowly status would indicate on a pitch made heavy by persistent rain.

The Seagulls had already won 16-12 in Llanybydder and they looked comfortable at half time with a 17-8 lead that was started by a good support try from livewire flanker Chris Shousha, followed from a typically powerful close-range surge by No 8 Simon James.

Then Fishguard added the try of the match when flanker Jordan James completed a hat-trick of back row tries, but this time from fully 40 metres as he twisted out of the initial tackle, sold two dummies to fool the cover defence and cross in the corner before Alun George supplied the icing on the cake with a cracking conversion.

But the counter to these try-scoring efforts was the fact that Fishguard gave away a penalty which was slotted between the sticks by Steff Richards, who missed the conversion after Rhys Morris had grabbed a soft try for Llanybydder.

Despite playing into the wind after half time, Llanybydder managed another try when flanker Aled James crossed for a five-pointer to set the alarm bells ringing – but Shousha was again on hand to score a bonus-point try from a concerted forward drive and George added the extra points to kill off any lingering Llanybydder hopes of a much-needed win.

Fishguard stay eighth but having closed the gap on the teams just above them - and are now 10 points clear of the bottom two.

Fishguard squad: Jason Davies, Ryan McVeigh, Neil Perkins, Gavin Walsh (capt), Liam Wilkes, Luke Freebury, Jac Evans, Richard Hunter, Jordan James, Simon James, Chris Shousha, Alun George, Andrew Williams, Gareth Adamson, Mike Jenkins, Ben John, Thomas George, Edward Bendall, Dai Evans.
