Kick off started with Lanharan looking to complete the double having won at Llantwit Major at the start of the season. Llanharan with a hesitant start allowed the visitors to get ahead with a scrambled converted try on what was to be one of their rare visits to the home line. (0-7). The restart allowed Llanharan to camp in the visitors half but a kick ahead to the dressing room corner of the field combined with home team hesitancy allowed Llantwit Major to get their second try. (0-12).
Llanharan now settled with their scrums and line outs looking comfortable. The front row trio of Rhys Haines, Sam Llewellyn and Tom Harris being immovable and second rower Evan James winning all his line out ball and more. With play now being in the visitors half, Lloyd Thomas was to skip through a busy defence to score one of his signature ties, converted by Gareth Witts. (7-12).
Ever adventerous prop Tom Harris was to score his 5th try for the season attacking the visitors line from 10 yards out, Gareth Witts converting (14-12). Ever active Gareth Witts was to score and convert his own try with the 1st half closing Llanharan 19-12.
The second half saw Llanharan continue their game plan with now the centre pairing of Dan Thorne and Chris Sharkey probing and penetrating the visitors defence and skillful full back Rhydian Worgan being a handfull for the visitors. Further tries for Llanharan were to come from promising young No.8 Lewis Stansbury, Sam Llewellyn and a second for Lloyd Thomas. Llantwit Major before the final whistle were to score a converted try and penalty.
A good result for the home side. Llantwit Major were mainly restricted by what they could achieve as a result of the back row of Gareth Witts, Lewis Stansbury and Gavin Allen being water tight in defence and an 80 minute threat with ball in hand. Llanharan 38, Lantwit Major,22.
Man of the Match, Sam Llewellyn
