Home com­forts cru­cial as Drovers stay on win­ning track

Llanelli Star - - Principali­ty Premiershi­p -

LLAN­DOVERY head coach Eu­ros Evans was full of praise for his men as they de­feated Cardiff to make it two wins out of two.

The Drovers did not lose a sin­gle home league game last sea­son and their im­pres­sive de­fence of Church Bank con­tin­ued at the ex­pense of the Blue and Blacks.

It was Llan­dovery’s 18th con­sec­u­tive Premier­ship win at home, and on the ev­i­dence of this game it will take a huge ef­fort from some­one to stop the run.

“I thought we con­trolled the game very well,” said Evans.

“We knew that we had to match Cardiff ’s big­ger for­wards and win­ning the break­downs was a key fac­tor.

“The back row of Shaun Miles, Richard Brooks and Stu­art Worrall were im­mense for us.

“Our lighter pack proved to be mo­bile and quicker to the loose ball.

“Cardiff had some big names in their line-up but we chal­lenged them hard for a win that will give us con­fi­dence for the rest of the sea­son.”

A penalty try and Joe Pow­ell were on the score­sheet for Llan­dovery, with Jack May­nard adding their other points from the tee. St­ef­fan Jones kicked a penalty for the vis­i­tors.

Cardiff coach Steve Law was full of praise for the Drovers’ ef­fort.

“We did not match their com­mit­ment and hunger for the loose ball and our play­ers need to take a look at them­selves,” he said. LLAN­DOVERY – Tries: Pen try, J Pow­ell. Con: J May­nard. Pens: J May­nard (2).

CARDIFF – Pen: S Jones.
