Narrow loss for the U13s

Llantwit Major RFC Under 13’s Tigers were home again this week, this time to Penarth RFC. 

Once more reduced to 13 players due to illness, injury and other commitments, Penarth demonstrated real fair play in offering their own players to make up the numbers in the Tigers ranks. 

In beautiful conditions both teams contributed to a really competitive game, with the Tigers taking an early lead through 2 tries; the first a barnstorming 60-metre run by Dan Bartlett converted by Ethan Harding, and the second a team effort finished at close range by Kelyn Joseph. 

Penarth fought back to bring the game level during the second half, and then snatched victory late into injury time with a great wingers try. 

So, disappointment at the end for the depleted Tigers, but a massive team effort to run a full strength Penarth team so close. 

Special mentions to man of the match, Kelyn Joseph and to Dexter Milburn, who on debut performed exceptionally well. 

Congratulations to Penarth for their hard fought win, but real positive progress for the Tigers and a big confidence boost to carry into their remaining games.
