Wizards pull a rabbit out of the hat to seal victory
REPLACEMENT hooker Ieuan Davies was the toast of Aberavon after he conjured up an 83rd-minute try that snatched victory from the jaws of defeat for the Wizards.
It looked as though the game had gone the home side’s way after lock Jake Baker muscled his way over for a try that Jack Maynard converted to take Llandovery into a 27-23 lead with two minutes left to play. But this Aberavon side never knows when it is beaten. Victory moved them up to fourth place with a game in hand on the three teams ahead of them in Tier 1.
Veteran lock Ian Moore gave the visitors a flying start when he crossed for the first try after only seven minutes.
And further tries from Luke Joseph and Stef Andrews took them into a 20-3 lead.
But the Drovers hit back on the stroke of half-time with a Mike Evans try and, ten minutes into the second half, they had tied things up at 20-20 with an Aaron Warren try and a conversion and penalty from Maynard.
James Garland responded to kick the Wizards back in front before Baker and then Davies struck at the death.
