Ieuan Jones hoping to build momentum after postponements

Monday 24th January 2022

Ieuan Jones felt the win over Glamorgan Wanderers RFC was important for building momentum following the frustrating stop-start nature to the season.

The victory on the weekend was only the club’s fourth game this season following the postponement of fixtures against Ystalyfera RFC, Beddau RFC and Cardiff Metropolitan University RFC.

Number eight Ieuan Jones, who hadn’t played since 27th November prior to Saturday, crashed over for his second try of the season alongside Adam Stratton, Darren Hughes, Amosa Nove, Garin Price and Matthew Jarvis, who also booted 13 points.

Referee Andrew Moule also awarded Pooler a penalty try to round off the scoring while Harrison James kicked the Wanderers’ only points.

Jones enjoyed getting back on the pitch after an eight-week absence and is hoping it can be a platform to build on.

“It’s been a tough time and a slow start,” explained the 28-year-old, who made his 40th appearance for the club on Saturday.

“It affects you massively. It’s a stop-start season and you need to build momentum, so playing one game and missing a few weeks is tough.

“We’ve been training hard and it’s just nice to get back on the field.

“We haven’t played for a few weeks and to put 50 points on a time like theirs is a good win.”

Jones' score was his 11th in the red, white and black jersey and continued his good form against the Wanderers, with three tries in two appearances.

“I was just lucky to get over the line,” he said.

“It’s a squad performance really but I’m happy to get over the try line.”
