Torrid time on Parade for Newport

NEWPORT 6 LLANELLI 46

Referee Rhys Thomas dominated a game in which Llanelli scored six tries, but three yellow cards and one red were issued.

The red card went to Newport captain and prop David Pattison.

In the first half Llanelli led 17-6.

Jordan Williams’ penalty was followed by one from Newport’s Tom Hancock.

Then there was a penalty try and a further score by wing Kristian Phillips, converted by Williams, before Hancock dropped a late goal.

The opening five minutes of the second half changed the game as first centre Nic Reynolds scored and then he sent Phillips over again.

Williams converted both and kicked a penalty and Llanelli were out of sight.

Pattison was then sent off and Llanelli added further tries by Justin James and Craig Price, despite Newport’s efforts.

What a dreadful result. Time for a change in the coaching set-up at Rodney Parade?

Putting coaching to one side for now, the standard of play was poor but the standard of the ref was worse. He gave a penalty try in an instant, no reset and a warning, just the penalty try and with no talking to or a card in site, bit of bias perhaps and a wish to stamp his authority on the game! Authority is something he lost after that dubious decision as three fights broke out showing he had lost all signs of control and respect from both sides. He missed numourus off sides at the breakdown one in particular was a Llanelli player who tackled a Newport player became detached from the resulting maul but joined again from Newports side but the penalty went to Llanelli for holding on to the ball. What a laugh the ref was but will we see r hear anything about it from the WRU report or the Club? NO it's all done in secret, but players get pilloried in the press for having bad games. As for the head coach, he should have done what Brian Clough did after Nottingham Forest played badly, get the team back out for two or three hours hard training straight after the game and not in the bar eating and socialising with those who just gave them a hiding.

Congratulations to the referee who apparently scored the 40 points difference betwen these sides. Newport in realitty were outplayed, out thought, with poor discipline. Please can i have my money back ?. The result reflected the enormous difference in quality between top+ bottom clubs. Yet another long hard season for newport awaits. On his performance west is very much best.

Was given a comp. ticket so did not waste any money watching this nawful display of rugby and reffing. Have to say well done to llanelli for winning such a game.
Rugby gave way to football so they could play saturday afternoon- saw that one coming. unfortunatly rugby has no where else to go unlike cardiff blues who could escape back to the arms park. I suggest give the county a reminder that it is a rugby ground and they are the ones who need to give way on the fixture front. pity help us if they ever acheive the football league!!! watch this space.
