One team determined to continue their winning streak is Orangutans Touch. The team are the current holders of the Cyffwrdd Sir Gâr Touch title having won in both 2011 and 2010.
The 2012 season is off to a winning start with Orangutans registering two wins out of two, including last night’s authoratitive display against newcomers Charlie’s Angels. Orangutans Touch experience and superior skills took them to a 14 – 1 victory.
Elsewhere, 2012 Touch new boys, Y Mellt continued their promising start to record a fine victory against local rivals Hyrddod yr Hendy, 11 – 6. Gower Dragons also made it two out of two with a fine 9 – 3 win against Lookilikies with Once Were Athletic becoming the fourth team to maintain a 100% record by beating Friendly Rivals, 5 scores to 1.

Referees / Dyfarnwyr
Cyffwrdd Sir Gâr Touch are again benefitting from strong links with Wales Touch Association, Referee Director, Kevin Hobbs (pictured). Kevin attended CSGT last night in order to observe and provide feedback to our referees and hopes to do so on a bi-weekly basis (other Touch commitments permitting!).
Kevin is a vastly experienced Level 5 Touch referee having refereed in the Touch World Cup, Touch European Championships and Australian Touch State Championships – amongst others. With Kevin passing on his knowledge and experience, the standard of refereeing in Llanelli will ultimately improve. Thanks to the WRU partnership, CSGT12 are usually able to provide two referees per game, meaning that CSGT12 is one of the few Touch leagues with dual referees, again ensuring a better experience for the players.
