Llangwm 26 • Tregaron 42
League 3 West A
A DETERMINED Llangwm side were beaten 42-26 by Tregaron in their opening game of the season at Pill Parks on Saturday (Sept 2).
It was Tregaron who made the better start with only two minutes gone as Mel Davies raced over in the left corner but Outside Half Gwion Phillips failed to add the extra two points.
Phillips then kicked a penalty soon after to give the visitors an 8-0 lead.
Llangwm looked to clear their lines but when a kick was charged down the ball rolled into the try area and it was Davies again who touched the ball down despite the best efforts of Josh Hicks. The conversion was wide and Tregaron’s lead remained at 13-0.
With twenty minutes gone, Llangwm started to come into the game and after winning a series of penalties, they opted to kick for goal and Steve Inward sent the ball through the posts to reduce the gap.
However, just two minutes later, Mel Davies faked a pass to create some space and was able to burst through for his hat-trick try and Gwion Phillips added the extra two points for a 20-3 lead.
The home side did not give up and were soon back on the attack and kicked to touch for a line out on the 22. They won the lineout but another infringement gave the home side a scrum. From there Gavin Jones picked up the ball and burst his way through to score the try and Inward added the extra two points.
With two minutes to go until half time Llangwm pushed for a second try and were rewarded when Luke Hayman made his way over and Inward sent the conversion through the posts to make it 20-17.
On the stroke of half time Tregaron were awarded a penalty which Phillips sent through the posts for a 23-17 half time score line.
Llangwm started well in the second half and reduced the gap further when Inward kicked a penalty from the half way line, assisted by the wind, to make it 23-20.
But as Llangwm looked to keep the pressure on they began to tire and Tregaron took advantage to close the game out.
Rhydian Jones crossed over but the conversion from Phillips was wide.
Hefin Ebenezer also went over and Gethin Jones crossed, both of which were converted by Phillips.
Inward added a final penalty for the hosts but it wasn’t enough as Tregaron closed the game out for a first win of the season.
Have your say on how Ceredigion becomes a more physically active county
A CONSULTATION is currently underway on how Ceredigion is becoming a more physically active County.
There is a plan to follow the “Sport & Recreational Activity Strategy 2014-2020” which is being developed, with an opportunity for Ceredigion residents to have their say.
Your feedback will be essential in supporting Ceredigion County Council’s production of a new development plan and in helping determine its priorities from 2022 to 2027. This will ensure that Ceredigion residents have access to quality opportunities to become more active, benefiting their physical and mental health and wellbeing.
The new plan will identify how becoming a more active county can contribute to the Council’s Corporate Strategies and the Local Wellbeing Plan.
To ensure that the plan meets the needs of all its residents, the Council would like as many people and organisations as possible to complete the survey. Residents have until 17 October to complete the survey: https://www.ceredigion.gov.uk/your-council/consultations/physical-activity-development-plan/

This is a chance for residents to have their say on how they want to receive sport and physical activities for the years to come. We recognise the impact that the coronavirus pandemic has had on sport and physical activity in the county and this is an opportunity to let us know how we can build back stronger.”

Three summer tests announced for Wales
WALES will play three summer tests in Cardiff this July as revised international fixtures have been announced.
Wayne Pivac’s side will face Canada (July 3) and back-to-back games against Argentina (July 10 & 17) at Principality Stadium.
These tests replace the scheduled summer tour to Argentina which has had to be cancelled due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainty around travel restrictions.
The Pumas will now travel to Cardiff for two tests against the Six Nations Champions.
Wales will kick off their summer campaign on July 3 at home to Canada. The Canucks who are coached by former Wales captains Kingsley Jones and Rob Howley will visit Cardiff for the first time since 2008.
“We are looking forward to this summer, the opportunity it presents, and we are delighted to have three tests confirmed,” said Wales head coach Wayne Pivac.
“It is disappointing not to have the opportunity to tour Argentina, especially on the back of our 2020 tour to New Zealand being cancelled, but in the current climate it is completely understandable.
“What is important is we have games and as we have said all along, this summer is a huge opportunity for us. We are delighted and proud to have 10 players selected for the British & Irish Lions, it is reward for all their hard work and we wish them all the best this summer.
“With those players away we always earmarked this summer as an important development opportunity for us.
“It is an opportunity to bring players into this environment, look at them closely and expose them to test match rugby. It is also an opportunity for current internationals to step-up into further leadership roles, so on both counts it is an important camp for us looking ahead to RWC2023.”
WRU CEO Steve Phillips added: “It is a huge credit to World Rugby that a full schedule of summer international rugby has been achieved against the backdrop of the global pandemic.
“Whilst it is obviously disappointing not to tour, we are delighted in Wales to be hosting Canada and to be able to honour the 2017 San Francisco agreement by hosting the Pumas for back-to-back matches, which will be hugely important to our international player development.
“Wayne has been adamant that his squad needs matches this summer and World Rugby have certainly delivered on that front.
“We are, of course, acutely aware of current restrictions and the ongoing and complex global COVID-19 picture. We will continue to monitor the situation in terms of any potential spectator access, but will remain entirely compliant and vigilant of all restrictions.
“In the current circumstances we are simply delighted to be able to play international rugby and any advance on that will be a bonus.”
