New Dock Stars 29 Llanelli Warriors 43 (Match 159)

The Warriors defended the Dai Spriggs memorial Cup against New Dock Stars on boxing day in a fine advert for the game of rugby.

Well touch rugby actually but what with one side of the field water logged and the other frozen there wasn't much choice. Even then the pitch had to be anrrowed but at least the game went ahead.

There were plenty of mistakes on both sides but also some good handling for the crowd to admire.

Joshau Crowther, Nathan Lawson (Darren Pollitt), Curtis Ramcke, Jamie Evans, Jonathan Jones, Gwilym Lewis, Jason Bloc Bennett, Jason Jenkins, Adrian Williams (Colin Talcon), John Horwood, Will Brown, Simon Jenkins, Rob Hughes, Jonathan Kerr,

Tries: Simon Jenkins (2), Richard Evans (2), Tony Whittaker, Jonathan Kerr, Curtis Ramcke
Conversions: Kerr (2) Jenkins

Jamie Shed made a third apperance some 10 years after his debut in Betws and poor Juice suffered at the hands of his usual team mates, everyone felt the cold but it was a lot of fun if not too serious.
After the match it was the big build up to the Scarlets Ospreys game over the road. Rich Evans was named Seren y Gem but was crap at the 1/2 yard of ale! By this time some Warriorettes had even turned up. There are a few photos here on the main site.
