Match Preview

Bedwas look to bounce back

Bedwas travel to Neath looking to bounce back from their defeat at home to Cross Keys last Friday night.

Neath themselves are on a good run having won five of their last six games and Steve Law knows its going to be another tough day at the office for his team.

‘Neath are in good form at the moment and we know we’re in for another bruising game’ said Law. ‘I want my team to show good ‘bouncebackability’ and get back to winning ways as we want to keep up the pressure on leaders Pontypridd and neighbours Cross Keys’

The Bedwas team selected this week shows changes to the front eight. Props Kristian Gay and Dan Preece start with Matthew Pettit and Ian George dropping to the replacements bench. Rhys Hutcherson retains his place at hooker but following an injury to Ben Roberts last week youngster Zak Hadley is on the bench. The back five shows one change with Aaron Harris taking over at openside flanker from the injured Simon Grainger.

The backs show no changes from the seven that started against Keys last week.
