So near, yet so far

Well, it wasn’t to be.  Despite the best efforts of the team, we didn’t quite have enough to beat Pontypridd in the SWALEC Cup Final at the Millennium Stadium.

The players gave it their all and competed well for the first hour, before Pontypridd pulled away in the last quarter.  The try right on the final whistle probably gave the scoreline a bit of an unfair gloss but Pontypridd deserved their victory.

The highlight for Neath supporters was a superb try from young wing Dafydd Howells, who showed great pace and confidence in rounding the Pontypridd full back for the score.  That’s the reason he’s been selected for the Wales squad.

It’s been a tough season but the players, coaches, management and the medical team have shown great pride and effort in getting through it.  They all deserve their break before getting back together for pre-season and a great 2013/14.
