LLANELLI seconds earned a big win on Saturday (Aug 24) as they beat Bronwydd seconds by 141 runs.

Llanelli won the toss and elected to bat and that looked to be a good decision as they reached an impressive score of 257-6 from their 50 overs.

Lewis Jones and Robert Bowen got the home side off to an excellent start with an opening partnership of 111 runs.

Bowen hit nine fours in his score of 56 before he was bowled by Carwyn Axford.

Axford then had Owain Baxter caught by Callum Collins-Davies for a duck.

Jones and Rhys Westcott then shared another good stand worth 87 runs.

Westcott hit eight fours in his score of 52 from 46 balls but he was then caught by Owain Rees off the bowling of Axford.

Morgan Jones made a score of 17 before falling to Matthew Bagshaw and he then also picked up the wicket of Aled Gilley.

Jones hit 11 fours as he reached his century but on a score of 100 he was caught by Trystan Evans off the bowling of Bagshaw.

Bronwydd knew they would need to bat well to knock off the 258 runs needed but after an opening stand of 28 between Steven Phillips and Callum Collins-Davies, things quickly went downhill.

Collins-Davies was bowled on a score of 13 by Aled Gilley and Matthew Bagshaw was then caught off the bowling of Daniel Lewis.

Harri Rees then trapped namesake Owain leg before and Sara Phillips did the same to Carwyn Axford to leave Bronwydd on 62-4.

Rees then bowled Rhufon Phillips and Phillips then had Trystan Evans caught. Rees then bowled Emma Brazier and Daniel Swift.

Steven Phillips had made his way to a score of 75 as he watched his partners depart cheaply.

He then saw Karl Von Weber bowled by Joshua Phillips and with their last man absent, Bronwydd’s innings was brought to a close on 116-9.

On Saturday (Aug 31), Bronwydd Seconds host Porthcawl while Llanelli seconds are away to Pontyberem.

Scarlets’ grassroots clubs show community spirit in delivering vital food packages

Scarlets community clubs have been working together to help deliver vital food packages across the region.


Volunteers from grassroots clubs and WRU girls hubs across Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire have been helping take the food packages to vulnerable members of society who are self-isolating during the Covid-19 pandemic.


The clubs have teamed up with the Scarlets Community Foundation — the charity arm of the Scarlets — and Carmarthen-based food wholesaler Castell Howell, while Scarlets players Osian Knott, Kieran Hardy, Ryan Conbeer and Jac Morgan have also lent their hand to the operation.


More than 300 packages were due to be delivered on Monday and Tuesday (April 6 & April 7), with the initiative highlighting that even without any action on the field, rugby clubs remain at the heart of their community.
Scarlets Community Foundation manager Caroline Newman said:  “We have been overwhelmed with the support that we have received from local clubs, the number of people prepared to volunteer to help the most vulnerable in our communities has been touching.


“People’s reasons for requesting packs have often been heart-wrenching and it really has made us appreciate what we have.


“The foundation has worked closely with Castell Howell to make sure the packages are ready to go to those whose need is greatest, managing to turn things around pretty quickly and I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in making this happen, our funder, Castell Howell, all the clubs, our helpline volunteer and the foundation members.
“Great teamwork which has made me proud to be part of the fantastic community that rugby creates.”

Here are the rugby clubs and WRU girls rugby hubs taking part in the initiative

WALES’ Six Nations match at home to Scotland on Saturday has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The two other Six Nation fixtures had already been postponed and no date has been confirmed to complete the 2020 Championship.

The Welsh Rugby Union had insisted earlier on Friday the game would “go ahead as planned”.

A WRU statement read: “The Welsh Rugby Union has maintained an open dialogue with, and continued to seek advice and direction from, the National Assembly for Wales and other stakeholders, including the Six Nations, on this fast-moving issue.

“Whilst medical advice remains consistent, we have decided that it is in the best interests of supporters, players and staff to fall in line with recent measures taken across the UK and global sports industries.

“The WRU would like to thank all parties for their counsel on the subject and will make further announcements with respect to rescheduling the fixture in the coming days.

“Every effort has been made to stage this game and we appreciate that individuals will have been inconvenienced. Given the fluid and unprecedented nature of this issue a postponement became the only viable option.”
