A last-ditch try by Gorseinon scrum half Jack Gronow from a tap and go penalty, which he also converted, denied Whitland victory over third-placed opposition in a topsy-turvy tussle where the lead changed hands several times and The Borderers showed they are better than their tenth spot would seem.
Whitland were just about holding on to their 32-28 lead when Gronow struck and although the Green & Whites will be disappointed by their set-back after recent good form they were offered consolation by the fact that they picked up two bonus points for scoring four tries and getting within seven points of the eventual winners in the final scoreline.
Another plus was the fact that Waunarlwydd and Loughor, two of the others in the bottom four, could only share 20 points and so picked up only a point apiece!
Gronow had already claimed a try in the first half alongside front row members Fenton Holder, Josh John and Rhys Richards, with Gronow and Liam Clayfield contributing penalties and the latter also notching a couple of conversions.
For The Borderers, there were tries from pacy winger Sean Coles (2), Aaron Mayne and Nico Setaro, who also landed three conversions and two penalties to keep his side out of the ‘dreaded drop zone’ with four games left, but with three of them at home!
