Tenby U13s welcomed Carmarthen Athletic and touring team Drybrook RFC, while Tenby U16s travelled away for a much anticipated quarter final against Fishguard. 

A great afternoon of rugby was had by all at the Tenby match. Special thanks go to Chris ‘Niffy’ Brace for giving up his afternoon to referee all games.

At Fishguard, Tenby U16s were first to open the score with a quick try for Lewis Rossiter. This was converted by Alfie Pryor and they took an early 0-7 lead.

With the conditions not helping Tenby, forwards worked hard to retain the ball. Some powerful runs would soon push Fishguard back to defend their own line and Jayden Allen would spot the gap to score the seasiders second. Once again it was converted by Pryor and Tenby extended their lead 0-14. 

With the Tenby forwards working hard they created the platform for the backs to try some moves of their own. Alfie Pryor eventually turning the pressure into points with a try which he also converted and Tenby went into the half time 0-21. 

The second half continued on from the first with the Tenby forwards dominating. With the Fishguard defence tiring under the constant pressure it would be Ollie Tucker who would take his chance to crash over and extend the lead 0-26. 

Fishguard didn’t drop their heads, they continued to put some phases together and this was rewarded with a try for the home team and they closed the gap 5-26. Tenby were to make sure they had the last say of the morning though when Alfie Luger used his quick feet to dart over the line and have the score finish 5-31. 

A big thank you goes to the u15s playing up: Madoc, Tyler, Ollie, Ethan, Spencer and Eli.
