Division One West: Whitland 38–3 Gowerton

After two agonising defeats, Whitland bounced back in style by hammering second placed Gowerton at Parc Llwyn Ty Gwyn.

The Borderers got the perfect start when flanker Danny Evans showed great skill to pick a low pass off his ankles and dart under the posts, and No 10 Nico Setaro converted.

Setaro also added the extras when centre Liam Price pounced on a chip ahead to score, while Josh Hamer landed a penalty to Gowerton to make it 14-3 at half time.

Early in the second half young scrum half Josh Thomas scored the try of the game, rounding off a superb team move to take a pop pass and dive over from close range. Shortly after and winger Sean Coles, back after a break in his native Zimbabwe, sealed the bonus point with an interception try.

Setaro converted and then took centre stage himself, dummying his way over before again adding the two points, and then rounding off the win with a try in the corner.

“We played to our potential today and it was a hell of a result for us,” said backs coach Dan Mason.

“The last couple of results have been tough to take but our attitude was first class.”
