WITH excitement mounting in the Cardigan area over the forthcoming WRU National Bowl semi-final clash with Amman United at Lampeter the Cardis had to keep concentration in the bread and butter of League 3 West A.

This they achieved in springing a 31-5 away win over lowly Pembroke Dock Quins and moved to within six points of leaders St Clears with two games in hand over the pacesetters.

The versatile Iestyn Crompton appearing at fullback opened the visitors' account with a try, No. 8 and skipper Llyr Griffiths doubled the try advantage and winger Rhydian Jenkins crossed for try number three, two of the touchdowns converted by outside half Llyr Jones.

Flanker Dam Dolling on permit from Milford Haven gave the Quins hope with a try before the break.

Skipper Griffiths put the Cardis out of sight with a try early in the second period and centre Aled Harries crossed for a fifth score converted by Jones as the visitors picked up a vital bonus point.

The WRU Championship clash between Newcastle Emlyn and Tata Streel at Ddol Wyber and the League 1 West confrontation between Crymych and Felinfoel at Parc Lloyd Thomas were postponed due to unplayable pitches.
