Swifts Match Reports – Sunday 17th March 2019

Under 7’s

Excited after Wales’ Grandslam win the previous day, Tenby Under 7s travelled to Haverfordwest on Sunday, eager to please the spectators.  The dry weather went in Tenby’s favour, allowing them to show off some good running rugby.  It was also visible to all watching that the team’s passing has come on immensely in recent weeks. The teams played three lots of 10 minutes, with Tenby dominating the first section by scoring 5 tries. The second and third sections did not disappoint with the team working excellently together, both in attack and defence.  Tenby came out the winners, scoring 11 tries to Haverfordwest’s 3.  A real pleasure to watch!  Man of the match went to Leo for his excellent tagging and 3 impressive tries.

Team – Caitlyn Lewis, Dylan Drewett, Jevan Guymer, Jude Christen, Craig Roberts, Leo Werner, Ethan Brace, Bradley Rossiter.

Tries – Ethan (5), Leo (3), Jude (2), Jevan.

Under 11’s

Last Sunday Tenby Under 11s had a home game against a strong Narberth side. From the first whistle both teams came out firing. The first 10 minutes saw waves of Tenby attack. The backs ran some lovely lines and forwards worked extremely hard to retain the ball. But Narberth defence was strong and held the seasiders attack back. As the first half came to an end both teams were presented with chances to apply  the pressure but it would be Narberth who were to turn the pressure into points first crashing over the line just before the half time whistle. After converting their try the score at half time stood at 0-7 to the away team. The second half started as the first had with both teams coming out with a fire in their belly throwing everything at the opposition. Narberth were first to push Tenby back onto their own line but Tenbys forwards were immense and determined to stop anything crossing their try line. Momentum soon swung back in favour of the seasiders and opportunities to push forward were snapped up by the Tenby forwards. Tenby were slowly able to piece some good phases together and the backs were able to have some runs of their own. Narberth defence was strong but Tenby were to finally break through with a well deserved try for Liam on his debut for the seasiders. His speed was too much for Narberth and he touched down in the corner. Try was converted and the score was brought to 7-7. With the minutes counting down Tenby were determined to build on the score and push for another. The forwards continued to work hard to retain possession. The continued pressure from Tenby saw Narberth being drawn in to defend which eventually saw Connor spot some space out wide and use his pace to cross for Tenbys second and convert to have the game end with the seasiders claiming a well earnt win 14-7. Captain for the morning was Sophie and Man of the Match was Rhys for his relentless tackling.
