Ebbw Goes West
Ebbw head to the Talbot Athletic ground in search of a win against a high-flying Aberavon team.
Reflecting on last week’s 22 – 9 win over Swansea, coach Jason strange said defensively it was another excellent performance and our set piece continues to improve. It`s becoming a real strength for the team. It was great to win with four tries and a bonus point against a Swansea team which has started this season well.
Looking forward to the game at league leaders Aberavon, Jason added, a big focus for us going into the game is sustaining pressure for longer periods, we have started the season well with three wins and three narrow losses in the closing minutes of games. The next development for the group is to win these tight matches.
Aberavon are a team which has been together for a long time and are very established as a squad with lots of talent and depth. Head coach Jason Hyatt has been coach for a number of year`s resulting in them having a lot of experiences together. He has done a very good job in building the club and has lots of depth in their squad and familiarity.
Commenting on Ebbw`s start to the season Jason added considering the number of new players brought into our squad, it`s been a very good start, with lots to build upon for the remainder of the season. The players commitment towards the club and each other has been excellent, we know what sort of club we want to be and the players and supporters are connecting which is great.
Friday is another opportunity to show this against a very good club. Both teams are playing well and it should be a very competitive game.
