Carmarthen Quins v Llanelli Second XV
A charity football match, the proceeds of which were given in aid of the Prince of Wales’ War Relief Fund, was played at the Carmarthen Park on Saturday between the Carmarthen Harlequins and the Llanelly Seconds. Both teams were well represented, and the climatical conditions were favourable for good football. During the initial stages of the game H. Thomas brought off some pretty tackling, and Treharne also did some useful defensive work. The game was played at a slow pace and was not particularly interesting, the struggle being mainly confined to the forwards. Samuels gathering from scrum on the visitors’ 25 got away on the blind side, and opened a very promising movement, which, however, did not prove effective owing to an awkward pass sent to H. Thomas. The contest was being waged in neutral territory when J. Richards smartly followed up and dribbled from his opponents across the line, with C. Davies in attendance, and scored the first try, which was converted by Treharne. Half-time arrived with the homesters leading by 5 points. The resumption saw play with a little more life in it, and an immediate bombardment of the home line by the visitors. After a prolonged attack the visitors’ centre gained possession and cleverly eluded four or five of the Quins and scored a try. The extra points were not added. In subsequent play H. Thomas and Harries were again prominent, but nothing further was scored. The final whistle was blown with the Quins leading by two points.
