A NUMBER of hypothesis are still being considered in relation to possible results of unplayed games in League 1 West, which like all other competitions throughout Wales fell by the wayside after the WRU declared the season null and void due to coronavirus.

When the end came there was growing optimism at Newcastle Emlyn over the Reds being crowned champions and gaining promotion back to the Championship.

Alex Williams and team-mates will know exactly what is required this time around having had an opportunity to run the rule over their rivals.

A high level of confidence among supporters at Dol Wiber during the run-in to the end of the campaign was no surprise – their favourites were serving up attractive and winning rugby that many felt would have seen them go through with their challenge.

The final weeks would have seen a three-way championship fight between leaders Llangennech, second-placed Emlyn and Felinfoel.

A 27-8 home win over Gowerton on March 7 which took Llangennech to the top of the pile three points ahead of Emlyn but having played a game more than the Teifisiders, was the final game before suspension of all rugby activity.

Emlyn had a superior record to the other two contenders, the Reds losing only once when going down narrowly at Penclawdd, while the pacesetters lost three games and Felinfoel were beaten four times.

If the season had continued Llangennech and Emlyn were to meet twice and Felinfoel were due to visit the leaders.

There was little doubt during the shortened term that Emlyn were capable of beating any side in the league and at the end of next season will hope to celebrate with a belated promotion party.

The club's annual general meeting will be held tonight (Tuesday, August 25) at the club at 7.30pm. All members welcome.
