Resolven 18 Aberavon Quins 19
In a hard but mainly fair struggle the Quins claimed a narrow victory putting them four points clear at the top of Division Two West Central.
Playing into the wind for the first half the Quins pack were in commanding form spearheaded once again by the Wrecking Ball known as Dylan Maclachlan also very prominent were Tyler Hopkins and Matt Saker. The Quins backs however were not as steady as normal and some very poor kicking out of hand handed Resolven several counter attacks. The home side took the lead against the run of play with a penalty goal from half way, 
A good penalty kick to the corner by Lew Cronin gave the Quins an attacking line out and a great take from Callum Beynon combined with a well constructed maul drove Jack Davies over for a try. 
The Quins pack continued to dominate, particularly at the set scrums where Props Dan Helson and Josh Pugh were in charge. An injury to Pugh brought Nathan Robins into the front row with no lessening of the effort.
The Quins were then shocked when indecision dealing with a kick led to a charge down converted try giving Resolven a 10-5 lead at half time.
Early in the second half Maclachlan crowned a superb performance with a try after a spectacular run from winger Kieran Brennan followed by a powerful surge by the pack,  Skipper Dale Bowen continued his good form in the second row by bursting through from close range. Roberts converted and the Quins appeared set for a convincing win.
Resolven kept in touch with a penalty during a rare visit to Quins territory, Then a catalogue of errors gave the home side a close line out and mauled their way over to score. Brennan showed electric pace to make a vital charge down of the conversion attempt. Resolven enjoyed their best part of the game as they threw everything into attack and were rewarded with a straight penalty shot from the 22 and the Quins held their breath as the attempt sailed wide.  New signing Morgan Hibbard looked at home in the centre and defended well along side Callum Handford. Rhys Edmunds continued good form and his long service was well accepted by fly half Cronin.
