Division Three West A: Aberaeron 69-3 Neyland 

The All Blacks refused to call their trip off to Aberaeron despite being severely depleted, but it meant for a tough 80 minutes against a team chasing the title.

Centre Dyfrig Dafis was at his clinical best for Aberaeron as they showed no mercy, turning a 27-3 half time lead into an eventual 69-3 win.

Aber kept the pressure on league leaders Milford Haven with ten tries, Dafis scoring four of them while his midfield partner Ollie Sawyer also crossed. Full back Morgan Llewellyn grabbed two tries and there were also scores for wing Bleddyn Thomas, forward Aaron Lewis and outside half Rhodri Jenkins. The latter also kicked eight conversions and a penalty.

For the All Blacks, their only points came via a George Evans penalty when they were only 7-0 down.

“We struggled for numbers with injuries and few going to the cricket at Lord’s, plus a wedding,” said assistant coach Steve Evans - who himself featured as a late replacement - while John Tennick came on for an injured Ben Williams in the first half.

“We could have called off in the week but wanted to fulfil it and we will now look forward to the home fixture in Neyland which will be a different game.”

The sides meet again on April 27th for what will be Neyland’s final league game of the season - and that game could yet be pivotal to Aberaeron’s title hopes.

Neyland: George Williams, Henry McBeth, Steven Roberts, Alex Codd, Gareth Lawler, George Evans, Nathan Williams, Chad Monk, Richard Jones, Luke Griffith-Dawes, Chris Busby, Mark James, Ben Williams, Owain Evans, Iestyn Evans.
