THE MUD of Merlins Bridge played its part in this game, as the only points of the day came from three penalty kicks. However it was the Red,
Black and Amber of Cardigan which came out on top. Haverfordwest, who looked to be improving before the Christmas break could only manage a Steve Williams penalty in the first half, as they couldn’t break through the tremendous tackling of the Teifisiders.
Llyr Tobias drew Cardigan level with a penalty of his own, as no pundit could call the outcome of the game at half time. Marcus ‘Castell’ Castle worked tirelessly in the loose, looking for an opportunity to apply pressure to the Blues, and it wasn’t until the 73rd minute that the Cardigan side were rewarded with a penalty, which replacement fly half Iestyn Crompton slotted, giving Cardigan victory after 80 muddy minutes.
