On Friday evening Narberth U15s visited Pembroke and experienced a tough start to a very physical match with both sides competing every phase of play. A try each in this first period meant the teams went into the half time break Pembroke 7 - 10 Narberth. After the break the game opened up with a great second half performance from the visitors which saw a lot more running rugby and Narberth got the ball out to the wings which lead to a final score Pembroke 7 - 51 Narberth. Tries Callum White (3), Charlie Reynolds, Archie Griffiths, Tyla Beeken, Dan Coaker & Thomas O’Toole, who also took the conversions.
A massive thank you to sponsors Calon Wen and A&C Aggregates for Nartberth’s polo tops and joggers.
Also on Friday, Narberth Under 14s played host to Pembroke Under 14s under lights at the Lloyd Lewis ground.
Narberth started well with some strong running from both forwards and backs and put Pembroke on the back foot with an early try and conversion from Iori Phillips.
The home side continued to dominate the game through some strong carrying from forwards Tom McNamara, Morgan Lewis, Josh Slater and Oliver Reeve.
This allowed half backs Freddie Reed and Milo Jones to release hard running centres Iori Phillips and George Chapman.
The back three for Narberth provide some great counter attacks with Will Monk relishing his role at full back.
Pembroke played some good rugby which saw them score their only try of the game at the end of the first half.
Half time score 37-5 to Narberth.
