23 Club Newsletter No 9
1) NO WINNERS OF THE FIRST/LAST TRY COMPETITION
The ninth round of the competition – Llandovery v Bridgend – saw no winners. The only try the Drovers managed was a penalty try and by the terms of the competition a penalty try does not count for first or last tryscorer.
The next round is at the Llandovery v Swansea game on March 8 2019
2) 23 CLUB RULES REMINDER
i) Please note that the first and last tryscorer competition is confined to home league games and does not operate for home Cup games

5) TICKET ALLOCATION
Most members used their free ticket allocation for one of the Autumn internationals.
Those who have not yet taken up their allocation and wishing to go to either Wales v England
or Wales v Ireland should get in touch with Gina immediately
Bookmakers gave Bridgend a + 13 handicap start on Saturday but the Drovers were well beaten so those who backed Llandovery to beat the handicap had a bad day.
Bookmakers Paddy Power, Betfair Sportsbook, Skybet and Bet 365 are all now offering both match and handicap odds on Principality games.
