Seven Sisters 11 Builth Wells 14

IWAN Mills marked his arrival in senior rugby with a last gasp winning try as Builth Wells celebrated a hard-fought win in Seven Sisters.

The sides scrapped out an evenly contested affair with the Bulls starting brightly with good build up work in the home half.

However Sisters opened the scoring with a penalty from Dan Short before the home side were temporarily reduced to 14 men following a wholly needless stamp.

Despite a variety of forward drives and crisp handling by the backs the Bulls failed to capitalise on their advantage and dealt a blow when Ashley Mills lost to injury.

Sisters rallied and led when Kane Griffiths crossed for an unconverted try.

Builth were further behind when Short added a second penalty after the break to leave the Powys side facing an uphill struggle.

However Builth gained a foothold in the game with good work between the forwards and backs pushing the hosts back inside their own 22 metres.

Builth were back in the game when a series of well timed passed released centre Tom Davies to drive under the posts for a try which outside half Rob Lloyd converted.

However another penalty from Short restored the Sisters’ advantage and left Builth staring defeat in the face.

The Bulls refused to be cowed and a stirring performance saw the Powys side battle their way into home territory.

A series of well organised and accurate drives culminated in youth team prop Iwan Mills forcing his way over the line with Lloyd adding the extras for victory.

BUILTH: T Davies, R Jones, Jerman, L Evans, Brown, A Mills, Pugh, Beehan, G Davies, Lloyd, Baggett, Samuel, T Davies, Lewis, Towns. Reps - Parry, Morgan, Price, Hilliard, Johnstone, Offa, I Mills
