Aberaeron 29 Pembroke Dock Quins 0

Aberaeron got back to winning ways for their first league success of the year with a comprehensive and complete performance against their opposition from South Pembs . It was all the most satisfying as the Seagulls controlled the game from the first whistle against a Quins side that was considerably stronger from the previous campaigns and enjoying a successful season. The cause however was not helped by another couple of injuries hopefully not serious but these were offset with the return of returning personnel in crucial positions, and the coaching team will now hope for further health improvements in the busy time ahead. The Quins relied mainly on a dogged defence and it took Aberaeron well into the first period to break through. A series of rolling mauls gained the initial territory and a quick release by Tudur Jenkins gave scrum half Gareth James the room to bulldoze over the line. The second try was not long in coming and again it was the forwards marshalled by captain Sion Evans that provided full back Morgan Llewelyn with the opening to score. The conversion by Rhodri Jenkins completed the first half scoring although a scything break by Ollie Sawyer was unfortunate not to bring further success, as the cover defence prevented the centre from crossing the whitewash. It was much of the same after the break with the Quins unable to penetrate a resolute defence, and continuous pressure on the visitors rearguard finally relented, allowing centre Dafydd Llewelyn to squeeze over the line. A Jenkins conversion extended the lead and the bonus point came minutes later as the outside half spotted a gap in the defence and a deceptive turn of pace to scythe through. A further try came in the closing minutes with Tudur Jenkins being the benefactor resulting once again from forward domination. Having been shorn of a few crucial personnel over a period of weeks, the competition for places will now resume which can only bode well for the remainder of the season.
