  • DRAGONBET

Bookmakers Dragonbet (dragonbet.co.uk) offered odds on the Llandovery vNewport   Premiership game.

They gave Newporta 4 point handicap start over the Drovers.

Llandovery won by a margin of 7 points so a number of 25 Club members who backed the team to win by over 4 points were celebrating on Saturday night.

Interesting to note that a Llandovery RFC fan had put £40 on the Drovers to do the Cup/League double at 12/1. A return of £520 – happy days.
