Felinfoel v Glynneath

This Plate fixture threw up the Battle of Division Ones,it's been a few years since these two sides had some exciting games , this turned into a game of two halves where Glynneath won the game in the closing minute.Glynneath showed their intentions in the opening minutes when centre Greg Roberts cut the home defence to ribbons and when Glynneath were stopped short of the line , it proved to be illegally and from the resulting penalty, Dylan Francis putting his sides first points on the board.The home side wasted no time drawing level when Johnny George slotted over a penalty of his own minutes later . Again Glynneaths forceful running paid dividends when a storming run by hooker Craig Tennant saw the same player finish off the move after a patient build up on the Felinfoel line. Glynneaths wing Harry Morgan gathered a clearance kick by the home side and after beating a few defenders on a touch line run his kick ahead just failed to produce a second Glynneath try. Johnny George put his side within two points with Felinfoels second penalty of the game.Glynneath looked certain to increase their lead when another powerful forward drive saw prop David Jones barge his way over but lost the ball over the line. If Felinfoel failed  to use the strong breeze in the first half ,Glynneath were guilty of the same thing as Felinfoel were coming more into the game but time and time again as they made ground into the Glynneath half the Glynneath defence held firm.This young Glynneath side pride themselves on their defence even in games that are well won they battle to keep their line intact and high flying Felinfoel failed to cross the whitewash.There was drama in the closing minutes when Johnny George put Felinfoel in front for the first time in the game , but when Glynneath restarted the game the home side were pressurised into conceding a penalty and Dylan Francis although slipping in his run up saw his kick sail between the posts to snatch victory .Final score .Felinfoel 9 Glynneath 11
