Carmarthen Quins kicked off attacking the scoreboard end of the ground and as early as the second minute the visitors were guilty of holding on at a ruck in midfield, 35 metres from their goal line and home outside half Matthew Jarvis was on target with his attempt at goal to put his side into an early lead (3-0). On 10 minutes Pontypool were on the attack inside the Quins’ 22 on Pooler’s right when scrum half Morgan Lloyd chipped over the visiting defence towards the right corner and right wing Huw Anderson dived on the ball to score a try which Matthew Jarvis converted with a fine kick (10-0). Four minutes later Quins were penalised for holding on at a ruck, three metres inside their half and Matthew Jarvis slotted the long range penalty (13-0). However, in the 18TH minute Pontypool were penalised at a ruck in midfield near their 10-metre line. Quins scrum half Rhodri Davies took a quick tap and sprinted 40 metres to score a try under the posts which outside half Jac Wilson converted (13-7).

On the half hour Carmarthen Quins were guilty of collapsing a scrum, 5 metres in from touch just outside the visitors’ 22 on Pooler’s left and Matthew Jarvis made no mistake with another fine kick at goal (16-7). In the 37TH minute visiting number eight Lewis Millin was shown the yellow card for side entry at a ruck near Quins’22 on Pooler’s left as the visitors had earlier been warned about their discipline. Pontypool kicked to the corner and from the ensuing driving lineout, hooker Sam Scarfe burrowed his way over for a try wide out. Matthew Jarvis added the extra with another great strike (23-7). In the first minute of injury time play was near the visitors’ 22 and Pooler knocked on. The ball was gathered by Jac Wilson who raced 75 metres to score to the left of the posts and he duly converted (23-14). Four minutes later Sam Scarfe took a blow to the mouth that needed medical attention and he was replaced by Peter Lloyd. With last play at the end of an enthralling and enjoyable first period, Pooler gave the ball some width and Pat Lewis made a break, taking play deep into Quins territory. He linked up with his fellow centre Joel Mahoney who dived over for a try, 15 metres in from the right corner. Matthew Jarvis obliged from the tee. Half time score – Pontypool 30 Carmarthen Quins 14.

At the start of the second half Pontypool tight head prop Ollie Drake, who had taken a heavy knock in the first half was replaced by the returning Sam Scarfe who went back to his usual position and Peter Lloyd moved over to prop. In the sixth minute of the second period from a driving lineout following a penalty kick to the left corner, Carmarthen Quins narrowed the gap with a try by Lewis Millin who touched down 5 metres in. This score was converted by Jac Wilson (30-21). In the 57TH minute Pooler made a couple of changes with Ben Moa taking over from Mike Herbert in the back row and Morgan Lloyd giving way to Matthew Flanagan at scrum half. Just before the hour mark Pontypool were on the offensive inside Quins 22 after a break by left wing Walker Price and it was the youngster who finished off the attack with the bonus-point try in the left corner, his first for the club. The conversion attempt went narrowly wide (35-21). Lewis Johnson then replaced Lance Randall in the Pontypool second row.

In the 66TH minute Carmarthen Quins were caught offside in midfield, 5 metres inside their half and Matthew Jarvis struck the ball well with another successful long range penalty (38-21). Then Pooler emptied the bench when Amosa Nove, Josh Malson, Jack Gillard and Kelvyn Williams took over from Pat Lewis, full back Matty Bancroft, Sam Scarfe and loose head prop Sam Cochrane respectively. In the 84TH and final minute, play was inside the visitors’ 22 and the home side were putting the Quins defence under pressure. Pooler’s patience paid off however when all action flanker Callum Davies powered over for a try to the right of the posts. Matthew Jarvis converted to put the seal on a fine victory. Final score – Pontypool 45 Carmarthen Quins 21.

Carmarthen Quins earn their first win over the season after a comfortable win over the Neath All Blacks.

It was Efan Jones who scored the match’s opening try after a brilliant run from Teddy Leatherbarrow, picking from the base of ruck, piercing the Neath defence. He then combined with his scarlets partner Efan Jones to touch down. Wilson converts from under the posts. 0 – 7 Quins

Captain Tom Phillips was the second person to cross the whitewash. After a dominant scrum 10m out from Neath’s Try line, number 8 Millin made a powerful carry towards the line, being brought down 3 metre short. Phillips then used his strength and power to pick and go over the line. Wilson converted. 0 – 14 Quins

After referee Newmann awarded Quins a penalty, outside half Charlie Titcombe noticed that Neath were not ready. Charlie decides to take the penalty quickly before picking out centre Josh Batcup who hit a superb line, to run in unopposed. Wilson on fire with the boot. 0 – 21 Quins

It was the right winger, Kalum Evans turn to cross the white line after a superb first phase starter from the backs. The ball found its way to Wilson at fullback, using his pace to get outside the defence before creating a 2 v 1 in the channel, unselfishly putting Evans away to secure a first half bonus point. Wilson converted once again. 0 – 28 Quins

After defending for 20 phases, Quins managed to turn the ball over. 2 passes allowed winger Nott to set off up the left hand touchline before offloading the ball to scrum half Efan Jones. Efan offload to Titcombe who picked his head up to see space on the right hand side of the park. Titcombe strikes a superb cross field kick into Evans’ hands. Evans beats three players before passing to scrum half Jones who walks in under the posts. A contender for team try of the year. Wilson accurate again. 0 – 35 Quins

Half Time: Neath 0 – Carmarthen Quins 35

Neath managed to get on the scoreboard early in the second half as Quins went down to 13 men. A lack of discipline and concentration allowed Neath to score. Jones converts. 7 – 35 Quins

It was Quins’ turn to strike, this time through Number 8 Lewys Millin. After superb efforts by the Quins forwards, Millin sealed the deal, going over from two metres. Wilson converts. 7 – 42 Quins

Neath scored their second try of the afternoon. Some neat play allowed centre to offload through the tackle, allowing the blindside flanker to run in out wide. Jones with another accurate knock. 14 – 42 Quins

It was Quins who had the last point of the game through Hooker Sion Jones. After another dominant scrum 5 metres out, the ball popped out to Millin who carried just short of the line. Jones picked the ball up and powered over scoring our 7th try of the afternoon. Wilson converts again.

Full time: Neath 14 – Carmarthen Quins 49
