Eye catching numbers reached in Indigo Prem

Cardiff v Aberavon

Cardiff's Luke Pollock claims a high ball against Aberavon

Carmarthen Quins’ Tom Phillips and Bridgend’s Zach O’Driscoll produced some eye-catching numbers in round 11 of the Indigo Premiership.

Share this page:

Phillips made 20 attacking carries against Pontypridd at Sardis Road but his efforts proved in vain as the home side secured a hard fought 29-20 win to kick off the action from round 11.

Ravens back row Zach O’Driscoll had a combined total of 35 ruck entries and clear outs during his side’s 27-23 victory against Pontypool. In a losing cause, Pooler’s Mike Herbert made 17 tackles to keep his team in the hunt.

Pontypridd full back Josh Phillips became the second player to burst through the century points mark with a fine performance against Quins. He posed a threat with ball in hand and his trusty boot edged a tight affair where his five penalties and two conversions saw him reach 110 points. Only Pontypool’s Matthew Jarvis (124) has more.

Bridgend’s Edd Howley is enjoying a fine season and he is currently proving a major threat in attack. He leads the season’s linebreaks with nine, two ahead of Llandovery’s Aaron and Adam Warren.

Howley has also beaten 40 defenders, 10 more than nearest challenger, Morgan Allen of Cardiff.
