Davies: We fear nobody

Sunday 01st October 2023

Pontypool do not fear anybody in the Indigo Premiership, according to back-row Callum Davies.

The flanker grabbed the fifth and final try as Pontypool secured a deserved 45-21 bonus-point victory over Carmarthen Quins on Saturday.

The victory was the third consecutive victory in the league with the opening-day defeat at Newport the only blemish thus far.

Huw Anderson, Sam Scarfe, Joel Mahoney and Walker Price all crossed the whitewash before Davies’ score while Matthew Jarvis was in imperious form from the tee with 20 points.

"We’ve won three out of four so we can’t grumble at that,” stated Davies.

“The boys have put some great shifts in and we’ve had some tough fixtures.

“The training has gone up a notch, everything has gone up a notch and it’s a really great place to be at the moment.

“In the first half the intensity was there from the boys and I don’t think we could have asked for a better half.

“There were silly errors but we played the game well.

“It’s never going to be perfect, we did start a little bit slow in the second half and allowed them back in the game.

“There are little things to work on but you can’t question the heart or desire of the boys and you can’t put a price on that.

“I guarantee many people would not have seen that scoreline before the game but the confidence in the group is through the roof.

“There is nobody that we fear in this league and we can just go up and up from here.”

The victory also ensured the club’s impressive unbeaten home run continued. The last defeat at Pontypool Park in the league came 2,719 days ago at the hands of RGC.

Since then Pooler have gone 58 league games unbeaten and that record remains intact so far in the Premiership.

“It’s still one of the best places to play rugby in Wales,” said Davies of Pontypool Park.

“The crowd, the atmosphere, everything is brilliant and if we can start making this place a fortress in the Premiership then happy days.”
