11's enjoy testing round robin

Supporters could be excused for thinking that the contagion of World Cup fever is turning into an epidemic for local year 6 pupils with Llantwit Major U11’s seeing their player numbers double in the last few months. This Sunday saw the debuts of two of the team’s latest additions with Fraser Nash and Ieuan Williams donning the blood and blacks attire as the team welcomed Nantymoel and Canton to a sunny Recreation Field.  Taking the field against Canton, regular spectators could only hazard a guess at what type of start they’d witness with the home team normally resembling the start of a truck pull in world strongest man. However this week, it seemed they opted to start like they’d entered the Atlas stones lift with the team straight out of the blocks and looking to race into feats of competitive splendour. Replicating a strongman powering through the first three atlas stones Llantwit’s try scoring was swift with Ieuan Deere, Eli Hickman Tom Strinati, Liam Davies, Aaron Moce, Huw Curtis and Dylan Barlow all touching down. Not happy to be obligatory passengers Canton also scored several good tries of their own but unfortunately for them it seemed they must have caught a dose of Llantwititis resulting in their slow start.

Next up was Nantymoel and those familiar with the Atlas stones know that competitors normally tired and weary by the fourth stone slow and have to grind out a performance and that was the case here. Nanty’s defence and rugby nous was sapping the home teams energy and it took every bit of effort for the home team to stay in the contest. A breakaway from Liam Davies added a burst of energy to our efforts and the fourth stone was up and the team now eyed up the 200kg stone finale. Like a true strongman competitor each player worked hard and showed effort and vigour lacking in the opening exchanges of the season. Llantwit added further scores through Liam and Aaron to finish the day pleased with their efforts.
