LLANELLY V. PENARTH- A BIG FIGHT. By ONE OF THE CROWD. Judging by the universal verdict on Saturday last, the match with Llanelly was one of the finest games ever played on the Penarth ground during the last two seasons, and the universal verdict was about right. It was, indeed, a great, and at times a sensa- tional fight. Llanelly had come down here to win; Penarth were determined not to lose. Llan- elly broke the Seasiders' record list season. The easiders were determined, if possible, to pay back old scores,this season. The Tinplaters had up to Saturday last, played eight matches and won the eight, and they had ocored 152 points against their opponents, and their opponents had not made a single point against them. They bad, therefore, some reasons for their keen fighting; they had a reputation to preserve. If they bad gone back beaten by Penarth a gloom would have settled like a pall over almost every inhabitant of their town. Probably there is no place where football has been so apotheosized as at Llanelly. Down there, they remember well the days of Bonsor Williams and Gilto Griffiths, and the legends of the famous Scarlet Runners; and now that the Boys," as they call the present team, have brought back the light of other days," it certainly would not have done for them to have lost last Saturday. PENARTH SHOULD HAVE WON. That Penarth should have won, everybody admits. Even the visitors will concede that point.—Consider- ing they are crippled as they are at present by the loss of brilliant players, the Seasiders made a show, brilliant beyond all expectation. Before they com- would loose when they finished the match, every- body wondered they had not won. They cartainly bad hard lines, and with ordinary luck, should have easily have come off victors. During the first half, the ball was scarcely more than five minutes m the Penarth territory, and Llanelly vere badly beaten at this portion of the game. Five times Penarth almost brought off a score; and, on one occasion, when Lawday got over from the line out, everybody thought the homesters had made three points. They certainly had very hard fortune against tbem. In the second half, Penarth too, had the best of the deal, though not so much as in the first half. It was in the forward department where the visitors were beaten most. The Penarth ups played a really magnifient game, surprising both friend and foe. It would be invidious to particularise. Every man Jack of them distinguished himself in gome way. It was only in the heeling out business where the visitors beat our men. At half Shepherd and Prole were really as they have been described, "superb." For keen hard work, for good sense and judgment, for brilliant tactics, marked by variety? their half-back play of Saturday was of the highest possible order, and excelled that of any of their previous performances. Olemence, at ull back, was again a grand success, and his sound work helped the homesters in no small measure. Our weak spot was the three-quarter line. As regards the defensive tactics, they were all right, but as regards aggression of a dangerous character, they compared badly with their opponents. Knight was the weakest man, and through his failure to return at the begin- ning of the second half, he was partly responsible for the visitors' try. Perhaps be was nervous- At all events it is certain if Jones had been in his place, Penarth must have wen. Eli Kirby, on the whole, played fine game, though he was inclined, at times, to adopt a roving commission, and in consequence,, one of th9 tmplaters got by him and scored. On the whole, however, he made a most favourable impres- sion. Cliff Bowen, Badger and Morgan Williams did well for Llanelly, and the same may be said of Evan Liloyd and Dai Morgan, the half-backs.
