Pontypool fly half Matthew Jarvis slotted three conversions against Llandovery to become the first person to burst through the century points mark in this season’s Indigo Premiership.

Jarvis has now amassed 104 points from nine games in the Premiership where he has booted over 22 conversions and 20 penalties. Of the leading five sharp shooters he also possesses a 81% success rate.

Cardiff youngster Harrison James has 88 points next to his name to be second in the pecking order while former Wales U20 fly half Josh Phillips has had a successful move to Pontypridd from Llanelli, securing 82 points to hold third place in the points scoring stakes.

Jarvis’ boot has obviously proved crucial in Pooler’s first season in the Indigo Prem, but his presence on the pitch has also been pivotal to the team’s return to the top flight of Welsh club rugby. His club colleague Joel Mahoney (814mins) is the only player in the league who has spent more time on the pitch than the fly half. Jarvis has been on the pitch fro 805mind while Pooler’s Ashley Sweet is in third place, credited with 781 minutes.

Newport winger Lloyd Lewis and Ebbw Vale hooker Rhys Francis have been neck and neck in recent weeks on the try scoring front but Lewis has jumped ahead after his crucial try against Cardiff last weekend. The former Wales 7s speedster has crossed the white wash for seven touchdowns, to be just one ahead of the Steelmen’s captain while RGC’s Dafydd Williams makes his first appearance with five tries.
