Brecon's unbeaten run ends

Brecon lost their unbeaten record, and slipped from top of Division 1 East to third, as they were beaten 23-15 at Brynmawr.

With a waterlogged home pitch, and the Scrum V television cameras at the match, the game was transferred from Brynmawr Rec to the Comprehensive School ground to ensure the game went ahead. The visitors had to rely on the boot of outside half Dean Gunter to kick five penalties, while the home side scored three tries.

Wing Josh Congreve and fullback Geraint Langdon got over the Brecon try line and the referee also awarded the home side a penalty try. Dan Butler kicked the rest of the points.

"Our pitch was waterlogged so we had to move the youth team of the school pitch to ensure we got the game on.

It was a great contest and the only disappointment, in the end, was that we didn't get the bonus point," said Brynmawr secretary, Rob Kershaw.

"We dominated the game up front and it was great to finally beat Brecon after losing the last three games to them."

Penallta's 16-9 win at Blaenavon made it five out of five for the Pitmen and moved them into second place, two points behind Brynmawr, who they host on 4 November. Nelson moved into fourth place with a 32-28 win at Caerleon
