Fairwater Match Report

Gareth's a bit late with his report this week, apparently he's been suffering from writer's block. It happens to all the great writers Gar!:

Fairwater RFC match report 29/04/23

Two games left, all to play for, and the prize of the league title is in our own hands. Another obstacle over come, in the form of a very combative Fairwater team. This win can only be described as, “falling off the top of the ugly tree and hitting every branch on the way down. However, a win is a win, and the dairymen showed great character to come back from 17 – 0 down, to gain a bonus point victory.

The game started with Llanharan bombarding the Fairwater try line, and with a perfectly timed and floated pass by the pelvic messiah, himself, Scott Jones, that landed right in the hands of a Fairwater player, who ran the length of the field to score, followed by the conversion, a penalty and another converted try. 20 minutes gone and the crowd could not believe it. Llan were losing 17 – 0.

The crowd started getting ugly, really ugly – I mean uglier than Adrian Harding, when he wakes up. This roused the players who had a purple 5 minutes, directly before half time, scoring 2 converted tries to go into the second half 17 – 14 down the pick of the 2 tries was a quality example of support ending with Leon Burton go over.

The past 4 weeks have taken a heavy physical toll on the players and there are many of them carrying injuries but their efforts have left the Dairymen in a good position in the league.

Man of the Match went to the ever combative and always horrible Tom Jenkins, who was in the thick of the action from the second he went on the field, as a replacement for Jack Thomson. Tom had to dash as soon as the final whistle sounded, as he had had to be at the premier of The Wizard of Oz. Tom, Lloyd Gregory and Leon Burton have been cast as Munchkins, with Andy Price as the scarecrow. There’s no place like home.

Finally, I would like to thank 3 unsung heroes who work hard every week but remain anonymous. Phil James, Glyn Stevens and Ken “Smudger” Smith, do an amazing job with the pitch every week. Thank you gents.

Final score

Llanharan 42 – 31 Fairwater
