Here's a report by Hugh Smith of our Swalec National Championship game against Pontypool on May 10th 2014
May 10 2014 SWALEC NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP
PONTYPOOL 34 LLANHARAN 23 (HT10-13)
Llanharan lost their hold on a deserved losing bonus point in this championship finale as
Pontypool clinched third place with a win secured by a last move try.
The Dairymen held a 13-19 half time lead with the wind at their backs, Huw Thomas getting
a first try of the campaign, a season in which he started every game.
Lewis Williams converted and added two penalties.
Although Scott Malone’s side were 10-0 up, the home team fought back to narrow the gap to
13-10 at half time.
A penalty try helped them take the lead and another converted score made it 24-13.
However, the visitors were still full of fight as Gabriel Davies got his 5
try of the season and
then replacement Jack Davies went over from a maul to make it just 27-23 to the hosts who
had added a penalty to their tally.
But a last move from a poor restart saw them earn a try bonus with the luxury of a two man
