Division Three West A: Neyland 14-29 Aberaeron

It took a second half charge from Aberaeron to secure a win at Neyland - but the All Blacks were much improved after being beaten 69-3 when the teams last met.

This signalled the end of Neyland's season and they finish fifth after a mixed campaign that saw them blood youngsters and play some superb rugby, but also struggle for numbers at times after being hit by a string of injuries.

Neyland led after centre Tom Hughes produced a good finish from 22 metres out and George Evans converted - but Aber hit back to lead 12-7 half time as Rhodri Thomas and Ollie Sawyer crossed, with Thomas adding the extras to the latter try.

'Gaga' Richards' team, who suffered yellow cards to Alex Codd and Iestyn Evans in that first period, were back in front after the break though when a break from No 9 Evans set up a try for half back partner Ollie Hughes.

Evans again converted but to their credit, Aberaeron finished strongly despite that draining midweek defeat in Laugharne that ultimately ended their title chances.

Morgan Llewellyn, Matt Roberts, and Tudur Jenkins all grabbed tries and Thomas kicked another conversion to ensure a second place finish for the Mid-Wales team.

"It wasn't a bad performance from us," said Neyland team manager Peter Davies.

"We felt there was some questionable refereeing but that's not an excuse."

Aberaeron assistant coach Aled Davies meanwhile, was pleased with how Aber bounced back from the Laugharne game.

"They were a lot more dogged today and I'm proud of the way the boys played after the disappointment of Wednesday night."

Neyland: Patrick Bellerby, Nathan Williams, Tom Hughes, Alex Codd, Henry McBeth, Oliver Hughes, George Evans, Chad Monk, Jack Harries, Eugene Grice, Sam Cataki, Luke Griffiths-Dawes, George Williams, Owain Evans, Iestyn Evans. Replacements: Steve Hamer, Craig Bennett, Jack Richards.
