After a recent run of poor form, the Quins finally got an important W on the board.
Charlie Titcombe scored all 16 points with one try, one conversion and three penalty kicks.
After recent results going the other way, the Quins defence showed guts and courage to keep the Ravens away from the whitewash for long periods of the second half.
Full time score; Bridgend Ravens 11 – 16 Carmarthen Quins.
Unfortunately, just after 2:30 (Kick off time) the referee decided that our match verses Neath had to be postponed.
After a 11:30am pitch inspection, the pitch was deemed playable. At 1:30pm the referee went to inspect and was happy with the condition of the pitch.
Both teams warmed up in the heavy rain but the pitch then started to hold water. Unfortunately, by the end of the warm ups, the pitch become dangerous leaving the referee no option but to postpone the fixture without a whistle being blown.
The fixture will now be rearranged for the near future.

Carmarthen Quins put on a spirited display as they stopped Llandovery gaining a home bonus point win for the first time this season.
*MATCH REPORT BY WRU*
If it had been a stroll in Carmarthen Park for the champions when the two sides met for the first time this season on the opening weekend, with the Drovers winning 54-31, this time there was no try-fest as the home side were held to three tries.
To their huge credit the Quins defended with immense gusto from first to last and kept their line intact in a hectic opening quarter. The stalemate was finally broken when ex-London Irish lock Ed Scragg smashed his way over.
The Drovers soon added another through wing Aaron Warren to make it just 12-0 at the break. Soon after outside half Ioan Hughes added a penalty to his earlier conversion to stretch the home advantage to 15 points.
The Quins kept on tackling to stifle home adventure until a close-range line out worked in hooker Taylor Davies’ favour and he plunged over for Llandovery’s third try.
Thomas Curry topped with defensive stats with 20 tackles (100%) whilst Leon Randell beat the most defenders in attack (7).
Full time – Llandovery 20 – 0 Carmarthen Quins
