CARDIGAN proved too strong for Llangwm on Saturday (Mar 24), as they earned an eighth win of the season with a 31-3 victory at Pill Parks.
Llangwm started the game well with Josh Hicks running at the Cardigan defence and when he was stopped illegally, according to the referee, Luke Hayman slotted a penalty through the posts for 3-0 lead.
From that point on, Cardigan defended well throughout and were an organised and professional outfit.
They grew into the game and they soon took the lead as Gruff Lewis went over for the try.
Llangwm were guilty of a couple of missed tackles and that allowed both Tomos Jones and Luke Palmer-Davies in for further scores before the break.
Sion Hughes also went over on the stroke of half time while John Lumb added two conversions and the visitors held a 24-3 lead when the whistle went.
Llangwm looked to respond early in the second and came close to scoring as Josh Hicks kicked ahead and chased after the ball but full back Lumb timed his tackle to perfection as he got to Hicks before he could touch the ball down.
Luke Hayman, Jason Mock and Gethin Thomas all looked in good touch for Llangwm as their scrum looked solid and the Wasps only conceded one further try in the second half.
That came when Andrew Jones made his way over near the posts despite the brave efforts of the Llangwm defenders to stop him.
Lumb then added the conversion to give the visitors a 31-3 lead.
Credit must however go to James Griffiths, Richard Scriven, Colin Picton and Rob Neil for keeping the wasps going through a tough period.
Cardigan saw the game out and having moved to within two points of the top five they will be targeting another victory on Saturday (Mar 31), as they travel back down to Pembrokeshire to take on Neyland.
Llangwm are also in action on Saturday (Mar 31), as they welcome fourth placed Aberaeron to Pill Parks.
Omicron: Sporting events to be played behind closed doors from Boxing Day
SPORTING events in Wales will be played behind closed doors from Boxing Day in a bid to combat the spread of the Omicron variant.
The Welsh government said the new measures apply to both indoor and outdoor sporting events, with economy minister Vaughan Gething confirming a £3m “Spectator Sports Fund” will support clubs and venues affected.
The decision comes after a number of postponements affecting Welsh sides in the Football League.
Cardiff City have called off their Boxing Day match against Coventry City due to several Covid cases among their players and staff, while Newport County will no longer face League Two leaders Forest Green.
In the United Rugby Championship, Cardiff Blues are scheduled to play Scarlets at Cardiff Arms Park on Boxing Day, although Ospreys vs Dragons at the Liberty Stadium in Swansea has been called off due to Covid.
“Sporting events over the Christmas period are one of the big highlights of the year,” Gething said.
“Unfortunately, the new Omicron variant is a significant development in the pandemic and could cause a large number of infections.
“We need to do everything we can to protect people’s health and control the spread of this awful virus.
“Throughout the pandemic we have followed scientific and public health advice to keep people safe. The advice is clear – we need to act now in response to the threat of omicron. We are giving people as much notice of these decisions as we can.
“Crowds will come back as soon as possible. We want everyone to be here to enjoy their favourite sports.”
Latest figures show Omicron cases are rising in all parts of Wales, while the overall rate of coronavirus infections is at just under 550 cases per 100,000 people.
Cardiff City have called off their Boxing Day match against Coventry City due to several Covid cases among their players and staff; Ospreys vs Dragons also off in United Rugby Championship; Welsh economy minister says clubs and venues would be supported through a £3m fund.
An EFL spokesperson said: “The EFL notes the disappointing news that fans of Welsh clubs competing in the EFL will be unable to watch their team play live at home over the festive period, but we appreciate there are many factors influencing each administration’s decision.
“Looking forward, the League will continue to work with our broadcast partners and other relevant stakeholders throughout this difficult period as we consider how we can appropriately support our Welsh clubs and their supporters so they can watch their team while matches are played behind closed doors.
“In addition, we will engage with the authorities in Wales to determine what type and or level of financial support they can provide our clubs in Wales whilst they are unable to welcome supporters through the turnstiles.”
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/
Councillor Catherine Hughes, Ceredigion County Council Cabinet Member for Porth Gofal, Early Intervention, Wellbeing Hubs and Culture said: “The physical and mental health and well-being of Ceredigion’s residents is very important. 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.”
