Youth XV - Results and Match Reports 2007

Wednesday 26 Sept - Youth Cup match versus Glam Wanderers 

A very young and inexperienced Quins Youth side took on Glamorgan Wanderers - a team from 3 leagues above them - in the WRU Youth Cup at the Diamond Ground on Wednesday. Despite the Wanderers fielding a powerful side with several District players the game was very open and not quite as one sided as the scoreline suggests. 

The Wanderers scored 3 tries in each half butthe plucky Quins side never gave up and came agonisingly close to scoring on several occasions. In the end the pace, power and class of the Wanderers proved too much but the young Quins side were certainly not disgraced by the 40-0 final score.

Saturday 29 September - Youth League away to Barry

The Quins team suffered several late withdrawals and a number of key players were also absent when they travelled to Barry for the first League game of the season. Play was dominated by a fierce wind blowing directly down the pitch with Barry having its benefit in the first half. The Quins sidecomprising only 6 backs did very well to restrict Barry to just 15 points in the first half, and turned round with some confidence.

The second half got under way and soon Quins were rewarded for their effortswith a try by Huw Holland converted by Gwion Jones. Unfortunately Barry also managed a unconverted try so the score was very finely balanced at 20-7 when a Barry player suffered a serious and entirely accidental injury. It was quickly apparent that an ambulance was required and that the player could not be moved so with approximately 15 minutes left to play the referee
abandoned the match.

As the scores were so close and there was so much time left we have askedthat the match be replayed later in the season.
