Stars too Strong for Warriors

Aberavon Green Stars edged this entertaining encounter at Darwin Road despite some strong performances from the Warriors

Darwin Rd hosted a great game of rugby with perfect conditions allowing both teams to indulge themselves in running rugby.


It was an end to end game with players across the field taking the opportunity to get involved and show of their skills.

The Stars started strongly. From the kick off the Warriors fell of some tackles and they took full advantage to storm through and score. The backline immediately showed the fluidity they would use all game. The Warriors defended the next kick off a lot better but the Stars found a way through to open up a very early lead.

From there though the Warriors match their hosts almost move for move. Adam Davies' strong running from 10 was a feature and he got the Warriors 1st score with a typically aggressive line that took him under the posts allowing Pollitt a simple conversion.
More good work from the forwards couple with some indiscipline from the Stars saw the Warriors soon pressing. Broken play saw live wire flanker Yanis Whiteley looking for a gap out wide, great footwork saw him step inside the Stars wing to get the Warriors second score.

Although the 2nd half continued to be an evenly matched affair the Stars got another score to ensure they turned round ahead.

The Warriors gave all of their large squad a run with experienced prop Colin Tacon and lineout specialist Darren Pollitt coming on to bolster the pack. Scrum half Jamie Evans immediately made his presence felt. His first action almost result in a yellow card for use of the elbow but he made amends with a long range break for a fine score.

The Stars pack kept themselves on the front foot with a good work ethic that showed up some poor rucking from the Warriors. They continued to trade scores. Gareth Ladd nipped round for a try converted by Rhydian Williams but the Stars kept in front. They were outpaced for a kick and chase from 60 meters but then produced the try of the game. Lawson collected a kick that was beautifully moved along the backline with some superb off loads. The Stars cover worked hard to cover the move and looked to have forced it into touch but they were undone by a classy finish from Captain Ben Win who just managed to dab down in the act of being thrown into touch.

It was a great way to end a fine game of rugby. Both sides played a full part and the spirit meant all enjoyed. The Stars were also kind enough to donate the proceeds of the after match raffle to the team.

Man of the Match: James Duke

Although there was plenty of physicality this was a fun match to play in. There was lots of good skills on offer and plenty of encouraging performances. man of the match was a very difficult decision with Dai Nosaur Haines, Gringo Jones, Adam Davies (NOT Fussy) Yanis and Jamie all mentioned.

Youssef wasn't officially making his debut having played in a Red V Blue exhibition match years ago, but it was his first full match. Crawley had some great moments , breaking through several times (HOLD IT IN TWO HANDS!) and Tomos Hall was outstanding for the Stars. 24 players all transported safely was also a good effort.
