Tregaron Match Report

Griffiths-Dawes leads barnstorming Neyland to big Mid-Wales win

Tregaron 12 - Neyland 52

Luke Griffiths-Dawes - four-try haul in big Neyland winLuke Griffiths-Dawes was the toast of his Neyland colleagues as he scored four tries to help start their league season off with a real bang after making the long trek to Tregaron and staying in control throughout the match after they had led 26-7 at half time.

Second row Griffiths-Dawes' support play saw him claim the All Blacks’ first three tries, two of them converted by No 10 Mark Riley, before young scrum half George Evans picked up at the base of scrum and crashed over the line and Riley converted - and all Tregaron could muster in response was a try by Steve Roberts which Rhys Jones goaled.

It was a similar story after the break as Tregaron could only muster a second try, this time from Gary Rees - as The All Blacks looked strong up front and sharp at the back as Griffiths-Dawes added his fourth score alongside tight head prop Jack Harries, which was converted by South African full back Dillen McGiffen.

Winger Henry Macbeth also got in on the scoring whilst replacement prop Ben James added his name to the scoresheet before Alex Codd created a terrific try from a back of the hand scoring pass for Patrick Bellerby, which McGiffen superbly converted.

Owain Evans was outstanding alongside brother Iestyn in the back row and there was a nice moment when 50 year old father Steve joined them as a breakaway trio and used his experience alongside another old hand in second row Mark James.
