Carmarthen Quins aggressive line speed ‘defence’ and some fine tactical kicking laid the foundations to their Fosters Challenge Cup away win. With both sides fielding young outfits from local clubs there were lots of fine talent on view and the first half proved to be evenly contested, with only a converted Quins try separating the teams.
Nevertheless, a solitary Matthew Flanagan try was all Llanelli’s reward for a determined effort as the Quins ran out deserved winners with a further four converted tries for a comprehensive 35-5 win in the first round of the Fosters Challenge Cup.
In the other game of the Pool , Llandovery were also convincing winners by beating Swansea 50-26.
Llanelli 5 - 35 Carmarthen RFC
