Prior to the Christmas break, Kenfig Hill sat in second place in the league, three points behind Maesteg Quins.

Last Saturday the ‘Mules’ took on an Aberafan Quins team who, everybody at South Parade knows from their own nail-biting, sphinctre twitching experience, are on the up. Lying just one place, albeit well above the relegation zone on points, the Harlequin Road men greatly illustrated their new found verve, with a bonus point win at home over the Crofft Coch outfit. In the process the ‘Field of Screams’ men lifted themselves from tenth to seventh.

Such is the difference between victory and defeat, at the same time Kenfig Hill descended from second place in the league to fourth.

 With eight wins from twelve, the Mules boast a a sixty-six percent record. Matches in Kenfig Hill are generally taut, tight affairs.

Last season, in the mist, mud and mire; Maesteg Quins took the spoils courtesy of a 5-13 victory. Lee Ronan’s amazing seventy yards interception try being the major impressive feature of a match much influenced by the rain.

The other try came courtesy of Steve Williams, who  was allowed to touchdown without a hand being placed on him from ten yards. Despite being surrounded by Kenfig Hill players at a line-out, the defenders followed coaching instructions but the Quins counteracted the ploy by racing over the try-line on bloc without taking the ball from their influencial skipper.

It was Williams who led an incredible defensive effort that was the game's winning factor.

Don't forget, the Mules don't like losing and will want to avenge the two South Parade defeats infilcted upon them early this season. They have numerous influential performers themselves and the Quins will do well to remember a number of seventy points hammerings inflicted upon them by Saturday's hosts.

It promises to be one hell of a game.
