RGC were made to regret a host of missed opportunities as they fell to a 31-24 home loss at the hands of Llandovery.

The Gogs’ inconsistent Principality Premiership campaign continued with a disappointing loss at Stadiwm Zip World in Colwyn Bay, and Mark Jones’ men will look to put things right this Sunday when they travel to Newport.

Despite the eventual result it was the home side that were on the front foot early on, and they got their noses in front when powerful back Danny Cross produced a fine run to go over in the opening exchanges. Billy McBryde slotted over the conversion attempt.

The fly-half extended their advantage soon after with a well-struck penalty, but this was met by a Drovers’ free-kick that was expertly despatched by Jack Maynard to get the visitors on the board.

Another fine passage of play from the hosts saw them cross the white wash yet again midway through the half, and this time it was Dion Jones that was the beneficiary of some neat link-up play to touch down. McBryde added the extras.

They were crucially unable to build on their extremely positive start to proceedings, and the away side notched their first try of the contest when centre Ryan Jones evaded a number of tackles to cross the line. Maynard fired over the conversion.

This seemed to spur on the away side as they continued to pile on the pressure, and Richard Brookes dotted over following a neat spell of phases at the end of the first period, with a conversion from Maynard brining the scores level at the break.

After the interval saw the Gogs’ miss a number of promising chances in good territory to get back ahead, and they were made to pay late on when the Drovers took the lead for the first time through a try from replacement Kristian Jones. Maynard added the extras.

Harri Evans, Dion Jones and Cam Davies all went close for RGC in the dying moments, but they were unable to add to the scoreline to round off a frustrating afternoon.
