Crymych RFC produced a superb performance to beat high-flying Hendy 13-10 at Parc Lloyd Thomas to move up to third place in the Division One West table.

It allowed Newcastle Emlyn to climb to the top with a 30-26 win at Llanelli Wanderers, with their sixth win from as many league matches so far this season.

Crymych were made to battle all the way by visiting Hendy, who went over for a first half try from full back Josh Davies, converted by outside half Rhydian Morris.

The Preseli men fought back and levelled the scores when centre Tomos Phillips went over for a try, and full back Adam Phillips slotted over the conversion.

Phillips also slotted a penalty, but Morris levelled matters, before full back Phillips sealed Crymych's sixth league win of the season late on with a crucial drop goal.
