Aberavon Green Stars return to Division 2 West Central duties on March 28 when they entertain Aberavon Harlequins at Little Warren.

They’ll be aiming to erase the memory of this defeat at league leaders Maesteg.
Lock Scott Hicks got the first of the home team’s four tries after 15 minutes. Full-back Ed Howley converted.
Green Stars levelled minutes later when a break down the middle saw centre Sam Owen touch down under the posts and outside-half Foard Cooksley convert.
However, Maesteg number seven Ryan Turner scored a pushover try on the half-hour for a 12-7 interval lead.
The vistors hit a purple patch in the third quarter but missed a kickable penalty and saw their backs twice brought down inches from the line.
Maesteg punished these lapses when Howley and scrum-half Keiran John scored two tries in a with Howley converting both.
