Quins power past Wasps in second half

Published

on

Llangwm 10-57 Pembroke Dock Quins

THE Quins maintained their position at the top of the League with a comprehensive victory at Pill Parks on Saturday (Sept 28), scoring no less than nine tries in the process.

It was the Wasps who were quicker out of the blocks, and the Quins were penalised at the first ruck, but fortunately for them Wasps Outside Half Luke Hayman pulled his effort wide.

The Quins however were soon on the scoresheet with two tries in the space of 5 minutes.

First, Centre Jordan Asparassa touched down in the Corner as he finished off a quick tapped penalty on the half way line, and then Right wing Rhys Bradney touched down in the corner after a determined run. Both went unconverted by Full Back Ben Hathaway.

If the Quins thought they were going to have things their own way they were mistaken, as the Wasps ball retention and commitment put the Quins under pressure and it was no surprise when second row Matty Lewis forced his way over under the Quins’ posts. Luke Hayman added the extras to narrow the scoreline to 7-10.

The Wasps were now throwing everything at the Quins as the visitors were on the wrong end of the penalty count, and with just two minutes left on the watch the Quins infringed once to often and Luke Hayman slotted over the penalty to tie the score at 10-10.

The Quins though are made of much sterner stuff these days, and with the last play of the half Centre Jack Price powered his way over, Ben Hathaway converted to send the Quins in 10-17 in front.

The Quins, with the slope in their favour, did not take long to impose themselves in the second half as Jordan Asparassa touched down wide out after after a mazy run and Ben Hathaway converted with a magnificent kick from wide out.

With the bonus point now secured and a substantial lead it looked ominous for the Wasps.

Young Left Wing Josh Brown scored his first try for the Quins after being put into space by Jack Price, again Ben Hathaway converted from wide out.

With the Quins now 10-31 in front and improving as the half went on, they started running the Ball from everywhere which resulted in another four tries, two more for Jordan Asparassa and a try each for Ben Hathaway, and, with the final move of the match. a try for Outside Half Keiron Machin.

Surprisingly Ben Hathaway converted them all except the try he scored himself.

On Saturday (Oct 5), the Quins host St Davids while Llangwm travel to Tregaron.

Team: Ben Hathaway, Rhys Bradney, Jordan Asparassa, Jack Price (Capt), Josh Brown, Keiron Machin, Gethin Bradney, Liam Smith, Carl Williams, Jack Davies, Mark Van Rhyn, Paul Busby, Alex Pierce, Ollie Parsons, Harold Owen. Replacements: Dai Moseley, Danny McCloud, Jordan Palmer, Ben Gibby, Connor Kolmel.
