CAR­MARTHEN QUINS 30 BRID­GEND RAVENS .. 28

BRID­GEND Ravens con­tin­ued the im­prove­ment shown in beat­ing Llanelli last week but had to set­tle for two los­ing bonus points at Car­marthen Park.

Brid­gend strug­gled to get a foothold in the match through­out the first half, with Car­marthen dom­i­nat­ing ter­ri­tory and pos­ses­sion dur­ing the open­ing 40 min­utes.

The Ravens de­fended well through­out the half, but in­dis­ci­pline even­tu­ally cost them the first try of the match.

A penalty, five me­tres out, was quickly tapped forc­ing the Ravens’ de­fend­ers to make the tackle from an off­side po­si­tion. The ref­eree awarded the Quins a penalty try.

A sec­ond try for the hosts with five min­utes re­main­ing in the half ar­rived thanks to a pow­er­ful maul drive.
