A third win in eight outings gave Crymych some breathing space in League 1 West after coming out on top 23-3 against Gorseinon at Parc Lloyd Thomas.

It was nip and tuck during the opening 40 minutes with chances few and far between and the only scores coming from two penalties landed by home centre Ifan Phillips and one by Blues kicker Andrew Steele.

Whatever head coach Randell Williams told his charges during the break appeared to bring rewards as the north Pembrokeshire villagers began to assert their authority on matters.

Ifan Phillips with a superb cross kick instigated the move that led to the opening when fullback Nick Bevan caught the ball and went over wide out.

The sizeable crowd of home supporters were in full voice as lock Mathew Freebury crashed over for a try and the remainder of the points came from the boot of Phillips to give his side an excellent win.

The Championship game between Trebanos and bottom of the pile Newcastle Emlyn was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch in the Swansea Valley village.

Emlyn’s cause was not enhanced when Maesteg Quins, who occupy the fourth relegation spot, pulled off a 25-20 win over visitors Cardiff Met.

The Teifisiders will be anxious to get something from their visit to Pontypridd to take on Rhydyfelin this weekend in order to keep in touch with those above them in the table.
