He scored three more tries against Aberavon RFC in the following game to reach a season tally of 44 tries (39 league tries and five in the Principality Cup) and earned the accolade of having Pontypool's best try aggregate since World War I, surpassing the 39-tries scored by David Bishop in the 1983-84 season, but less than the 55-tries scored by wing Tom Robbins in the 1913-14 season.
