Ebbw remain at home this weekend as we welcome Carmarthen Quins to the CiNER Glass Community Stadium. Following on from a fortnight night ago, with a first win under Jason Strange versus Llanelli the camp is in a happy mood and knows there is still plenty to come.
“We’re still learning about each other, but we need consistency as a group and individually. When people did their jobs, we looked half decent, and we need to keep that level up,” said Jason.
This will be the first meeting between the sides since February 29th, 2020 – nearly two years following Covid. That one ended 6-6, and with a red weather warning for much of South Wales this weekend it’s fair to say it could be another close, low-scoring affair.
The Steelmen’s first league win of the season, and first of any kind since September saw them leapfrog both Swansea and Bridgend, who remain winless. Quins, however, have been rampant to get their league campaign underway. They currently sit top of the league having played four times already and will pose both a powerful forward threat and a potent backline.
“I thought tonight was the first real sign of being near where we want our culture to be. We looked like a team that wanted to play for each other for the first time and I hope that continues into Carmarthen,” Jason added.
