Wing wizard Lloyd Lewis is looking to build some momentum as Pontypool RFC face a hectic fixture schedule for the first time this season.
Lewis returned to the fold last weekend after a two-year absence and picked up where he left off with a brace of tries.
His return to action has come at the perfect time as Pooler now face six games in six weeks after a frustrating stop-start campaign, starting with the trip to Ystrad Rhondda RFC on 26th March.
And the 25-year-old is looking to make up for the lost time, both individually and collectively with his teammates.
“It felt great to be back out there,” he said.
“It’s always a pleasure to wear the Pontypool jersey so it was really nice after two years of no appearances.
“I was injured at the beginning of the season so I missed a couple [of games] and others I was due to play in were called off.
“I have also been playing 7s this season, which was caused me to miss a couple of games and I’m really grateful to the club for allowing me to have those experiences.
“I think it’s very important that we build momentum as a squad moving into the run of games ahead.
“We started slowly against Trebanos RFC last week, however, we got into our game in the second half.
“Moving forward we need to take confidence from that second-half performance and start well for the rest of the season.
‘I have no doubt that we can do that.”
Croesyceiliog-born Lewis continued his fine scoring record and took his tally to an incredible 31 tries in 33 games, including finishing off an incredible move involving opposite winger Amosa Nove.
“Amosa is a quality player and he did really well to gather [Kieran] Meeky’s kick and pop it up to me for an easy run-in,” he added.
“I can’t take too much credit for it. It was great play and heads-up rugby from both of them.
“I’ve had a good couple of seasons with Pooler try-wise.
“I think a lot of that is thanks to the good players around me.
“I don’t really think about scoring before the game, I tend to just get on with it and try to take advantage of my opportunities when they come.”
