Division One West: Tenby United 18-22 Burry Port

It’s now nine wins from nine for Burry Port after the boot of Lee Evans edged them to a win at Tenby.

Evans landed 17 points with the boot but for The Seasiders, there was at least a losing bonus point after prop Rob Luly crashed over from the final play of the game.

The visitors led 13-10 at the break with an Andy Francis try and a conversion and two penalties from Evans – but centre Andrew Cooke kept Tenby in it with a remarkable try as a Burry Port attack broke down metres short of the line, and Cooke picked up the loose ball and raced 80 metres to the line.

Lloyd Thomas added the conversion and a penalty and also kicked three points early in the second half, but three more Evans penalties saw the leaders 22-13 up late on.

But at the death a series of pick and go’s ended with Luly crashing over, leaving coach Jonathan Evans to reflect on another tight defeat.

“That’s the seventh losing bonus point we’ve had this season,” he said.

“We are competing in every game and I can’t fault the effort today, but it was another near miss.”
