26 -13 !!  What happened boys?  5 of their best players are in the Dragons squad today. Thought u would have have given them a hiding.  Hats off the Quins though - a good win against Neef.

Talking to Craig Hawkins last night (perks or what??) and he said there must have been about 3,000 Newport fans there and not one Llanelli fan able to make it due to the on-goings at Stradey. He wasn't complaining about the lack of support, just saying how much of a difference any kind of vocal support does to a side. Doesn't the WRU realise when they sort the fixtures out that some people do want to follow their region AND the club side. Idiots fair play to them. Looking forward to the Cardiff game - if I can get there.

TV has a lot to answer for in this situation.  Could I remind you also that Llandovery and Carmarthen Quins supporters would also like to follow their region and club side.

Remind all you like P Davies. I put REGION and CLUB side in for the simple reason there are more clubs in the Prem than just Llanelli, and more regions than just the Scarlets. By using these terms, I included Cardiff/Blues and so forth. IT WAS A GENERAL TERM.

Very disappointing result in Rodney Parade!! Must be kicking themselves when they saw the hiding Quins gave Neath! Was at Carmarthen Park and the atmosphere was absolutely elctrifying. Quins dominated every aspect of the game and Neath are lucky they came away so close!! Quins outside half Craig Evans slotted a 55 metre pearler and the pack absolutely anhialated the Blacks. The front row of Ben Grace, Dan Smith and Mark O'Kelly were phenomenal along with Paul Arnold and Geraint Rees in the 2nd row. The half back pairing of Ricky Richards and Evans was always in control and played the team like a violin. Emyr Jones crossed for his 99th league try and was close to nothing his 100th. He was awesomly aided by Darren Simpson and the back three of Andrew Jones, Anthony Rees and Richard Davies kept the Neath back 3 at bay and got stuck into them in attack at every opportunity!

Special mention has got to go to the back row though. They met every Neath attack head on and they ended up knocking them back 5 yards every time. The number 8, Chris Jones was huge and carried hard against a bigger Neath pack, and blindside flanker Andrew Thomasshowed his experience and toughness in his take no prisoners attitude. But openside Gareth Williams was something else. He got in Neaths faces and got reactions from them which put them off their march. But he also brought a composure to his own team that showed maturity beyond his years. Some of the hits he put in were fabulous and his enthusiasm for the battle was a pleasure to watch.

I thoroughly enjoyed this match and only wish there were cameras there to showcase it. This would have been such a great advert for the semi pro league and would show Gareth Jenkins that there are players in this league who could do a job for him and the region if only they were given the opportunity!! Have a look Gar, u may be surprised.

May you not forget that Quins were down to 12 players for 5 minutes as well due to sin-binnings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great performance and a pity Llanelli couldnt take advantage of Neaths loss.

Llanelli can't have struggling for players because Adam Jones and Aled Gravelle were both given to Llandovery.

They are definatley missing key players.  Chris Rowe and a few of the boys were saying how much they are missing openside Matthew Evans at the moment.  He is a player who brings continuity to the team and offers the backs opportunities from the turnover ball he creates.  Any idea when he is back? He could be the answer!!
