Quins arrived without a full complement of players and were helped by their hosts.  During the opening salvos Tregaron tried too hard as they forced the last pass instead of playing a simple game.  Once the first try was scored they settled into a pattern and by half time the game was won with a bonus point.  The first try was a good one as youngster Rhydian Jones, playing on the left wing, finished off a good back line move.  Gwion Phillips at 10, converted well.  The second try was scored by flanker Rhydian Davies as he burst through the defence from the 22 meter line.  The third try was one for the forwards as a driving maul crossed the while wash, it was prop Dorian Pugh who touched down.  Phillips added the extra points.  Phillips in fact kicked ten out of eleven conversions in the match, which is a record at the school field by all accounts.  The last try of the first half was another excellent one, No.8 Hopkin Matthews tracked his outside backs to score in the corner. The youngster was the pick of both teams with his clever running lines and excellent support play.  The second half was highly entertaining as a total of ten tries were scored by both teams, another seven from the hosts and three to the Pembrokeshire outfit.  Tries were scored at regular intervals as the game opened up.  Pugh and … scored another two each to complete their individual hat tricks.  Full back Dilwyn Harries, scrum half Nathan Lloyd and reserve Arwel Jones added one each.  For the Quins Josh Bosswel, Jack Davies and Sam Richards scored tries and Ben Hathaway kicked one conversion.  The Tregaron hierarchy are grateful for Aberystwyth RFC to allow some of their players to play under permit for them and the performances  of Phillips and Matthews were invaluable in this contest.
