Dylan joined us in January 2013, another Pembrokeshire product to join our ranks. In the seven seasons he was with us, he developed into a strong running, powerful, try scoring finisher who gets better with age. His fearless approach has meant injuries have prevented more appearances.
Joining us mid season in 2012/13, he was on the losing side only twice in 12 Premier matches and scored tries against Aberavon and at Sardis Road for us to finish up in 6th place in the Premier Division. In season 2013/14, a number of injuries restricted his appearances to 9 of the 22 League matches, and we finished runners up by just one point to Pontypridd, our highest placing to date, Dylan has contributed 7 tries in his 9 games.
In 2014/15 Dylan played in 17 of the 22 Premier matches and the second of his two tries at the Brewery Field, was the Clubs 1.600 try in the Welsh League on Sept 20/2014. At Parc y Scarlets on February 1st 2015, he scored another two tries in the Clubs record League victory of 91 / 7. He played in the Cup Semi Final and narrowly lost to Bridgend 20-22 and the Club finished 6th in the Premier.
In 2015/16 Dylan played in 20 of the 22 Premier matches. These included the Cup victories over Newport, 30-12, R G C,25-19, semi-final , Bedwas 23-13 and the Millenium Final defeat to Llandovery 18-25, and the semi final of the Fosters Cup defeat to Bedwas This was the season when the value of a try was six points.
2016/17. An injury on Oct 1st versus Cross Keys kept Dylan on the side lines up to the end of February. A good win against Merthyr in the semi final of the Fosters Cup mid March signalled his return and a narrow defeat in the Final against Bedwas 18-23. Dylan played in only 9 of the 21 League matches.
2017/18. This was the season when the Division was split after half the matches played. Having finished in the top half the Quins went on to win 10 of their remaining 15 games. The highlight being their televised away game up in the League Champions back yard, The Wern, Merthyr, by a convincing 33-12 with Dylan coming on in the second half to cause all sorts of problems for the ‘Chiefs’ outfit.
2018/19 Dylan came into his own and crossed for 12 tries, with his two scores at Sardis Road, Pontypridd, and our 32-12 victory causing the home side’s biggest defeat of the season, when little was heard of the famous “Ponty Chant”. He went on to score 12 tries for the season and plenty of promise for the future.
His playing record to date;
Played 108 premier League ; 26 Cup matches and 7 Friendlies; He has scored 39 tries for 199 points.
