Division Two West: Fishguard and Goodwick 0-14 Carmarthen Athletic

Over the years Carmarthen Athletic have proved to be Fishguard and Goodwick’s bogey side and this latest match at The Moors was no exception as The Seagulls gifted the opposition an early try, failed to turn a strong territorial advantage into points and conceded a second converted score after the oranges.

It gave the visitors the double since they had easily accounted for Fishguard by 36-7 earlier in the campaign – and although their respective league positions saw the home side as slight favourites they made a bad start following a loose drop out 25 going straight into the arms of Athletic centre Tom Gravell, who sped up the touchline after a deceptive dummy, adding insult to injury as he also landed the extra points.

Scott Riches caught the eye for The Seagulls with some strong carries in cahoots with Simon James and skipper Chris Shousha as the entire pack worked hard but it was not be for Nathan Jenkins’ team, although they still sit in eighth place in the table, ten points ahead of Carmarthen Athletic, who have three games in hand.

Fishguard: Robbie Jones, Luke Marshall, Thomas George, Sion Rowlands, Ed Bendall, Andrew Williams, Alun George, Ryan McVeigh, Liam Wilkes, Gavin Walsh, Gwilym Evans, Simon James, Scott Riches, Luke Freebury, Chris Shousha. Replacements: Neil Perkins, Ben John, Jordan James, Richie Hunter, Rhys Evans.
