Llandovery go clear at the top of the Indigo Welsh Premiership as Ebbw Vale drop valuable points against Pontypool RFC.

Last weekend Llandovery travelled to Dunraven Brewery Field to face Bridgend Ravens. Llandovery showed us they clearly aren’t letting their foot off the gas after their shock defeat to Ebbw Vale. The Drovers comfortably beat Bridgend 13-36 in a great display of rugby away from home. Llandovery have re-established themselves at the top of the Indigo Welsh Premiership, now sitting three points clear. Despite the win, Llandovery need to remain composed as they face Pontypool who currently sit third in the table this Saturday.

It wasn’t Ebbw Vales’s weekend, missing out on the points against Pontypool in the Gwent Derby. Despite scoring a total of 20 points in the game, Pontypool proved to be the stronger team on the day, going on to win the game 20-25. Ebbw Vale may view the fixture as a missed opportunity towards the end of the season as they drop down to fourth place in the Welsh Indigo Premiership. Despite the loss, the Steelemen remain only 4 points from the top as they prepare to face Newport on 18th November.

Elsewhere in the Indigo Premiership Pontypridd faced Newport away from home. It was set to be a difficult fixture with the last win against Newport dating back to 2019. Ponty scored the first points of the game through Josh Phillips kicking an easy three points from a penalty. Unfortunately for Ponty, these were the last points they would score, with Newport hitting Ponty with a barrage of tries to win the game 54 – 3. Pontypridd will look to set the record straight next week as they face Swansea on 11th November.

Over in National League 2 North, Rotherham Titans maintained their undefeated start to the season as they beat Otley 34-32 in what was a narrow but well-deserved win. Luke Cole, Harry Dunne, Zak Poole, and Jack Taylor all added to the points tally with Lloyd Hayes adding nine from the tee. Looking towards the weekend now, Rotherham will face Hull Ionians away at Brantingham Park on 11th November, where they will aim to maintain their fine form so far this season.

Over in the Regional 2 Midlands West division last weekend Scimitar had both Hereford and Worcester in action. It was a hard-fought game for Hereford, but the home advantage paid off in the end as they narrowly beat Moseley Oak by a point with the game finishing 16-15. The win means Hereford is now up to fifth place in the Regional 2 Midlands West ahead of their game against Newent on Saturday 11th November.

Unfortunately, it was so positive for Worcester as they faced Stow-on-the-Wold at home last weekend, losing 14-29. Despite Worcester tallying up a total score of fourteen points it just wasn’t enough. The loss means that Worcester now sit in eleventh place in the Regional 2 Midlands West. Worcester does however have the opportunity to redeem themselves this week as they face Moseley Oak away on Saturday 11th November.

Over in Counties 2 Midlands West (East) division, Barkers Butts won 18-13 against a strong Coventry Welsh. The win means that Barkers Butts sit second on the table and are now undefeated in their last four games with the added bonus of an AWO against Old Wheatlyans. Barkers Butts will face Uttoxeter away in their next game on Saturday 11th November.

Elsewhere in Counties 2 Midlands West (East) Woodrush was also in action last weekend as they faced Southam at home. Unfortunately for Woordrush, it was just two points in the end that separated the teams with Southam narrowly clinching the win with the game finishing 13-15. Woodrush is away this weekend they are preparing to play Claverdon who currently sit one point ahead of them on Saturday 11th November.

In the Counties 2 Surrey division last weekend Chipstead was in action against bottom of the table Law Society who are yet to win a game this campaign. Chipstead showed their dominance as they won the game 45-0, which is enough to push them up to fifth position in the Counties 2 Surrey. Chipstead will aim to break into the top four next week as they prepare to face Old Wimbledonians away on Saturday 11th November.
