RGC were left rueing a disappointing second half display in their 15-15 draw with Carmarthen Quins.

The Gogs’ failed to hold on to a comfortable advantage at the break and had to settle for a share of the spoils, leaving head coach Mark Jones with plenty to ponder ahead of their trip to Bargoed on Saturday (2.30pm).

Jones, said: “Quins 100 per cent deserved that come back after that second half performance.

“They managed the game better and were the aggressors at the breakdown. Our discipline was a disgrace in the second half.

“At half time the penalty count was at least plus six in our favour and we were blown away after the break.

“We talked at half time about not kicking the ball away and not getting jackaled and I think we conceded four penalties as a result.”

The home side started the contest at Stadiwm Zip World in imposing fashion and went ahead after just 30 seconds when winger Sam Jones demonstrated his trademark speed to go over in the corner for an unconverted score.

Their pressure reaped further rewards midway through the half when a surging drive from the scrum saw Cam Davies break free, and the talented youngster teed up Jordan Jones for an easy touch down. Billy McBryde added the extras.

The Gogs’ fly-half made it a 15-point advantage at the interval with a well-struck penalty, but the tide completely turned in the second period after a rousing response from the away side.

This resulted in Jac Wilson despatching a free-kick of his own to get Quins’ on the score board, and things grew even more concerning for RGC when the visitors went over from close range soon after.

Wilson converted the try to bring them to within five, and there was still time for further drama which arrived on 75 minutes when the pacey Dylan Wilson squeezed over in the corner.

Fortunately for the Gogs, Wilson failed to fire over the extras from the corner to ensure they went home with something to show for their efforts.
