When Crymych visited Yr Hendy in League 1 West earlier in the season the Preselimen suffered a 43-27 defeat.

But it was an entirely different story in the return at Parc Lloyd Thomas as the north Pembrokeshire villagers emerged 41-14 winners and in the process joined Hendy in joint fourth.

Hendy have been firing on all cylinders of late, but it was Crymych who took control from the word go and led 17-7 after the opening 40 minutes.

Impressive hooker Carwyn Rees ran in for two tries, both converted by centre Ifan Phillips who landed a penalty while Lee Thomas got a try for the visitors converted by Rhydian Morris.

During the second period home winger Nick Bevan helped himself to a couple of tries and also on the scoresheet were flanker Aled Harries and fullback Rhodri George, all the tries converted by Phillips.

Fullback Jake Newman sprang a second Hendy try, converted by Morris, but it proved too little and too late.

Chalking up a seventh win in 14 outings, Cardigan maintained a mid-table position in League 3 West A after beating Llanybydder 21-20 at King George V Playing Field.

The visitors outscored the Cardis by four tries to two but were left to rue a failure to convert any of the touchdowns.

Cardigan led 16-0 at the break through a try by influential No. 8 and player/coach Colin Davies converted by outside Emyr Harries who also landed three penalties.

Centre Aaron Tomkinson got a second home try during the second period and as ‘Bydder fought back they went in for tries by scrum-half jack Thomas, flanker Aled Evans, and No. 8 and skipper Rickie Davies who bagged a brace.
