Aberavon Quins 3 Tondu 27
The Quins put in a creditable performance against league leaders Tondu and were particularly unfortunate when two decisive tries were scored whilst they were reduced to thirteen men due to yellow cards.. The Quins pack tore into their visitors and the front row trio of Ieuan Evans, James Davies & Jon Bamsey dominated the scrums in the first half. Eye catching performances from flanker Chris McGrath and lock Rhidian Geirat kept up the pressure on the visitors’ eight and hard tackling from the home backs stemmed many attacks. A flawless display from full back Mike Parfitt saw him up to the task of fielding the huge kicks from Paul Smithson. It was Smithson who eased the visitors in front with a penalty before Tondu hit their stride and winger Darren Thomas crossed for a well-worked try converted by Smithson. Stung by this reverse the Quins eight raised the tempo and Craig Williams celebrated his return to the Quins line up after countless years by dropping a goal. Williams also kept his pack going with some trademark touch finding. Smithson added another penalty goal to make the score 13-3 at the break.
The Quins pack were still a force to be reckoned with Dean Scully and Jon Bamsey well to the fore As the game unfolded however over zealous refereeing resulted in yellow cards being waved and on two occasions they were reduced to thirteen men. Tondu took full advantage and tries from Matthew Phillips and Neil Hobson converted by Smithson secured victory
