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.
