Aberavon Green Stars humbled at home

26 October 2011

THE visitors from the opposite end of Swansea Bay had a field day at Little Warren, Aberavon Beach, in this Division 3 South West fixture, scoring four tries in each half.

They led 22-0 at half time through tries by scrum half Andrew Evans, centre Gbernie Fisher, winger Tom Longdon and flanker Joe Rimell, with Fisher converting his own try.

Mumbles also had the better of the second half, but Aberavon Green Stars did put up more effective resistance, and in reponse to a try by winger Flavio Digiorgio the home pack took control and turned a rolling maul into a try by young flanker Chris Williams. The score was converted by scrum half Thomas Connolly. Digorgio’s try was converted by Fisher.

Tom Langdon then popped over for his second try before Stars’ prop Kristian Griffiths sidestepped several tackles to touch down under the posts. Connolly added the points.

But the Mumbles side’s renaissance continued with a try by Sergio Daggiano before Fisher ran in try number eight.

Next Saturday (October 29) Aberavon Green Stars play away at Pencoed.

Meanwhile,  Aberavon Green Stars Youth continued their successful season in a friendly fixture in which they defeated Ammanford Youth by 27 points to seven.

Their four tries were scored by Kieren Mattocks, Conor Condon, Zac Ley and John Beulah. Mattocks again had his kicking boots on with a penalty and two conversions.

The current form of the Green Stars youth XV will be tested next Saturday when they come up against a strong Tondu youth team in a Wesh Youth cup round at Little Warren.
