Division One West: Whitland 67-12 Tenby United

Whitland totally outclassed Tenby as the hosts crossed for 11 tries to claim a comfortable bonus point win at Parc Llwyn Ty Gwyn.

The Borderers looked dangerous every time they had the ball in hand and grabbed some fantastic tries in the process. The home side led 33-7 at half time and followed up with a further 34 points in the second. 

This was the Borderers impressive fourth win on the trot, and it was second row Raff Williams who crashed over for the opening try, it stemmed from good lineout possession and followed by good hands from Nico Setaro, Josh Thomas and Gino Setaro.

No 8 Jack Mason added the second score, Jonny Thomas and James Stephenson counter attacked from deep before Mason pounced from close range. Both tries converted by Nico Setaro.

The Seasiders’ cause wasn’t helped as they had second row Huw Evans sent to the sin-bin for a late hit. The Borderers took advantage as Courtney Bowman cantered 50 metres for a cracking solo unconverted effort to make it 19-0.

Centre Gino Setaro and full back James Stephenson both dived over for two well-worked tries and outside half Nico Setaro added the extras.

The Seasiders worked their way up field and was rewarded when Luke Dedman crashed over for Lloyd Thomas to convert as the hosts led 33-7 at half time.

The second half started well for the Borderers, centre Josh Thomas breaking the gain line on the visitors’ 22 and crossing for try number six. Setaro added the extras.

Mason grabbed his second try of the match, the No 8 driving hard to score in the left hand corner for an unconverted score.

Ryan Morgan scored the Borderers’ eighth try, the replacement back row man throwing an audacious dummy and cantering over from the Seasiders’ 22.

Skipper Marc Jones set-up try number nine for Nico Setaro, and the visitors struck with a close range five-pointer from prop Ethan Morgan.

However the hosts had the final say as winger Scott Lloyd and centre Gino Setaro crossed for two more tries to complete the rout.

Whitland coaches Gareth Bennett and Dan Mason were extremely happy and spoke to Telegraph Sport shortly afterwards.

Dan Mason: “The boys did the job that we came to do really. It was scrappy at times but we really put Tenby to the sword today.”

Gareth Bennett: “It was a great team effort. The boys stuck to the task but it was a good resounding win in the end with the sun on our backs the boys showed what they can do.”

Tenby coach Gareth Thomas: “It’s been a tough season, and today was also hard against a good Whitland side. This side is not yet good enough to be playing at this level and they’ve learned some hard lessons in Division One.”
