All in all a great morning's rugby, played and reffed in the right spirit. Thanks to Matthew and his side for setting up the 3-way, despite being short of a few of their regular lads. We are lucky to have two keen local teams in Gorseinon and Waun with whom we look forward to renewing our rivalry next season.

After all the rain it was great to make the trip to Gorseinon to find a pitch in perfect condition and two sides waiting to play the Wildcats. Given that Underhill Park is currently suitable only for competitive bog snorkelling this was a bonus. First up were the home side and in a very open game there were plenty of tries on offer for everyone in the team. There was some very unselfish play from the boys, with players looking for the pass and creating space for others to score. The second game was a very hard fought match against Waunarlwydd. Tries were hard to come by on both sides with defences being very strong, leading to lots of turnovers and a very tense match. The result hung in the balance for what seemed like an age, with the Wildcats defending a 1 try advantage, after tries from Luca, Ethan and Owen, until with the last play of the game Sam sneaked in at the corner.
