GERAINT Rhys Jones will hope to keep impressing with Ebbw Vale at RGC 1404 in the Premiership tomorrow afternoon – if only to keep his little brother quiet, writes Chris Kirwan.

The 31-year-old signed for his hometown club this summer after a career as a professional that saw him play for the Dragons, the Cornish Pirates and most recently the Scarlets.

The Wales sevens international is the son of former Ebbw captain Kingsley and older brother of fellow fly-half Dorian, who had two successful spells at Eugene Cross Park and left the Dragons at the end of last season to play for Soyaux Angoulême in France.

"It's great, I grew up watching my dad play here and over the last few years my brother," said Jones.

"It's nice to come home, put the jersey on and try to live up to my brother's name! Dorian is a favourite here and played really well, and he reminds me of that every week!

"That puts the pressure on me but hopefully I can go out on the field, perform well and keep him quiet for a few days.

"I am just enjoying playing for my home team, I want to play every week and hopefully win some trophies."

Dorian slotted 41 consecutive kicks last season and, after missing his first effort from the tee, Rhys knocked over a pair of conversions in last week's 19-17 win against Aberavon, that despite having to use his right leg rather than his usual left.

"I twinged my left quad and it was an injury that I suffered with at the Scarlets last season, meaning that I didn't get as much game time as I wanted," said Jones.

"I used to kick with my right foot when I was younger, I hadn't done it for about 10 years but it has been alright for the last two weeks and it's nice to have the option… but this week hopefully I can use the left again."

Something has to give at Parc Eirias with both Ebbw and RGC boasting two wins from two.

The Steelmen have started impressively with a comprehensive success in Llanelli and a second-half fightback to take the spoils against the Wizards.

"We don’t want to be thinking about relegation – do that and you will end up in a battle," said Jones.

"It is early days but we have started well and if we can keep going then hopefully we can aim for the top of the league."
