The second half started with Bargoed again giving the ball away cheaply and from a scrum Llandovery attacked scrum right and an inside ball  saw them get over the gain line. They were patient in attack and went through the phases for Berian Watkins to score from close range, Maynard converted for a 31-10 lead.

They added to their try tally and attacked for Gavin Thomas to score another converted try to lead 38-10

Two furthe tried came from more Bargoed errors and the Drovers were 50-10 ahead.

Bargoed scores again after good work by Matt Billett and when it was moved wide strong running wing Ashley Norton scored in the corner.

The Drovers bounced back with turnover ball again punishing Bargoed with ball Prop Jamie Hughes going over for a converted try.

The final score went to Llandovery when another attack broke down and centre Ryan Evans capitalised to score and take the final score to 62-22 to the visitors.

Bargoed will rue handling errors and missed tackles in a sub standard performance but should take confidence from the amount of territory and possession they had throughout the game.
