BARGOED ........................ 14 CAR­MARTHEN QUINS...19

CAR­MARTHEN Quins cap­tain Haydn Pugh was de­lighted to seal back-to-back vic­to­ries thanks to their win at Bargoed, but ex­pressed his dis­ap­point­ment at miss­ing out on a bonus point.

Nick Reynolds, Dale Ford and Torin My­hill got tries for the Quins with Aled Thomas kick­ing four points.

Jor­dan How­ells and Alex Her­bert crossed for the Bulls with Josh Prosser adding both con­ver­sions to bag a los­ing bonus point.

Quins tried to push for the fourth bonus-point clinch­ing try but it didn’t come.

“It was a fan­tas­tic win, back-to­back vic­to­ries and we go again at Cardiff next week,” said Pugh.

“It was tough, they did well to slow our ball down.

“We were happy to get the win, it’s what we came up here to do.

“We are dis­ap­pointed with no bonus point but the win was al­ways the big­gest ob­jec­tive.

“Bargoed re­ally put us un­der pres­sure in the last 10 min­utes.

“We al­ways knew it was go­ing to be tough to come up to Bargoed and I think we came out of the blocks well.

“We’ve got some play­ers who have played at the top level and some young­sters com­ing through and it’s only get­ting bet­ter and bet­ter.” BARGOED  Tries: J How­ells, A Her­bert; Cons: J Prosser (2).

CAR­MARTHEN QUINS – Tries: N Reynolds, D Ford, T My­hill; Cons: A Thomas (2).
