Making a flying start to the new WRU League 1 West season Crymych turned on the style in springing a 31-21 win over last season’s third-placed high-flyers Llangennech at Parc Lloyd Thomas.

Both sides crossed for three tries but the Preselimen had an ace in the pack in the form of fullback Adam Phillips.

Returning to the fold after a spell with St Clears, the no 15 contributed 16 points from the boot as he landed four penalties and converted two of the scores.

Try scorers for the north Pembrokeshire villagers were winger Laurence Headman, scrum-half Dai Phillips and outside half Jac Davies.

Nathan Bowen, Jordan Saunders and Richard Thomas got touchdowns for the visitors all of which were converted by Chris Doran.

In an entertaining League 3 West A game Llangwm defeated Cardigan for the first time in more than a decade as the Wasps emerged 10-7 winners at Pill Park.

It was a thoroughly deserved success for the Pembrokeshire side after dominating for lengthy periods and with a little more rub of the green the homesters could have won by a wider margin.

After Llangwm winger Dan Morgan and scrum-half Ollie Davies were brought down just short of the try line Josh Hicks went in for the first of his side’s two tries and he went close on two other occasions.

The home side’s advantage was wiped out early in the second half when Cardigan fullback Iwan John initiated a flowing move that culminated in centre Geraint Williams going over under the posts for Llyr Jones to convert.

Llangwm fought back strongly and from a scrum near the try line Lewis Murphy dived over wide out for an unconverted score.
