Narberth complete Wanderers Double
Take two for Narberth at the Memorial ground this season after floodlights prevented a game being played in March.
“Narberth are a well coached side with a clear continuity in their selection” commented team Manager Mark Gould “Its our opinion that its that continuity which marks the difference between some of the top sides and sides like ourselves”.
“The end of season fatigue clearly shows through and the 27th could not come soon enough” added rugby Chairman Tony Murphy.
On a pleasant evening at the Memorial Ground both sides played out an exciting game with plenty of running rugby on show. Narberth grabbed an early lead but the home side struck back with a Gruff Tough try making it 5-7. It was clear that the visitors had the advantage of a settled squad and the somewhat makeshift Wanderers were always going to be chasing the game. The pressure mounted on the home side and despite their best efforts they could not wish to contain the Narberth team. Two more tries followed before the break and the sides went into half time with the visitors comfortably ahead 5-21.
Any hope of a revival in the second half were snubbed out from the whistle. A bonus point try kicked off the half and the Wanderers were forced into long periods of defence. Whenever Narberth attacked they looked dangerous and that was assisted by some poor out of hand kicking when the home side had chances of their own. 3 more tries followed at steady intervals in the half taking it to 5-40. The Wanderers did give themselves some heart with the final score of the day by top try scorer Morgan Williams. A try Tough converted to make the final score 12-40 but all in all a night to remember for the Wanderers faithful all except for Tony Murphy who didn’t have trouble with the lights!
