Leighton Jones: We were very clinical

Tuesday 11th April 2023

Leighton Jones admits that Glamorgan Wanderers caught his side “on a very good day”.

Everything Pontypool touched seemed to turn to gold under the sunshine at Pontypool Park as they ran in 16 tries to claim an emphatic victory.

Pooler struck over a century of points on an unforgettable day in the WRU Admiral National Championship.

Duan Thomas led the way with a hat-trick while Ashley Sweet and Deon Smith helped themselves to braces.

Garin Price, Mike Herbert, Amosa Nove, Joel Mahoney, Mathew Powell, Dai Langdon, Owain Leonard and Matthew Jarvis also touched down with the latter adding 26 points from the tee to add to a penalty try.

“I wasn’t expecting a scoreline like that,” said head coach Jones.

“The boys were very clinical and most of the stuff we tried came off.

“We have the belief that on our day we can put those performances in.

“A massive credit to the coaching staff and the players, quite often you’ll see a team win a semi-final of a cup and then have a bit of a lull or a dip but the coaches and players have worked hard, the focus has been back to the league.

“We take things a game at a time. We won last week and then we were looking to this week.

“We are looking to always get better, individually and as a team, and it’ll be no different this week.

“We’ll speak as a coaching group over the next day or two and the boys will be in Tuesday and Thursday and we’ll be focused on Bargoed.

“We’re 17 from 17, we know the big prize at the end of the season so we’ll go back to planning for Bargoed and how we are going to approach and attack that game.”
