Humble Nove shares credit with teammates

Monday 30th October 2023

Match-winner Amosa Nove remained humble after his heroics earned Pontypool an impressive victory over Cardiff.

A fortnight ago, Nove crept into space on the left wing at The Wern to deliver the decisive blow in the final seconds and secure a dramatic victory over Merthyr.

And he was up to the same trick at Cardiff Arms Park when he chased down a kick from Harrison James, got the block and then pounced on the loose ball to claim the win in the dying seconds.

However, the 28-year-old opted to share the credit rather than take the glory himself.

“It is all credit to the boys, working hard on the inside and outside and I’m just doing the easy job of putting the ball down,” he said.

“We’re in a good position at the moment.

“All the boys are working hard and it is showing on the field.

“The boys are on a roll and that is all down to the work we are doing behind the scenes.

“It all starts from there.”

Head coach Leighton Jones believed it was just what he deserved after showing great determination and hunger to chase down the kick at that stage of the game.

“He hasn’t given up on anything, he has chased as hard as he could and got the reward, which was well deserved for the effort he put in," explained Jones.

“That just shows the hunger and drive in the team that they will go to the final whistle and will do what they have to do to grind out that W."

The victory keeps Pontypool third in the table, with second-placed Ebbw Vale due to visit Pontypool Park on Thursday night in front of the S4C cameras.
