Ebbw take on Carmarthen Quins this Saturday (2.30KO) in a key clash for the Steelmen. The clash was due to take place several weeks ago, but Storm Franklin put kibosh to those plans and so we arrive in this position with a mathematical possibility of finishing fourth, would you believe?
Ok, that’s massively unlikely, but should the Steelmen take the full 15 points it would put us in fourth, one point behind where Merthyr sit now. Of course, a lot of rugby is to be played out of our hands, but it’s always nice to look ahead and see what could be possible with the squad we’ve accumulated.
Eager eyes will have seen Rhys Downes returning to the side after a spell away from the club, he’ll come off the bench to make his Ebbw return. A much-needed boost after a tough trip to Aberavon last weekend that saw the first half pull the game too far away for Ebbw to hope of a result.
Quins will deliver a very strong pack and developed gameplan, and sit 12 points above us in the table, but only two spots higher. Llandovery filling in the gap.
Jason’s men now sit ninth in the table, seven points above the bottom placed Bridgend Ravens, and with both Bridgend and Pontypridd yet to come, it could yet be an exciting end to what has been a difficult season.
Bridgend has now been re-arranged for a Thursday night kick off on April 27th, rounding off the season after we travel to Sardis Road for the second time this season. With this weekend being the final Saturday afternoon game at the CiNER GLASS Community Stadium this season let’s make sure we pack the bank and make Quins #FEELTHESTEEL!!!
