Team news for clash with the Steelmen

Bedwas host Ebbw Vale on Saturday as they hope to keep the momentum going and sign off with a win before the league takes a three week break.

Ebbw appear to be a team in transition but Bedwas know that they are not to be taken lightly and will offer a physically robust challenge which will need to be overcome.

Head Coach Ian Gardner has made a few changes to the line-up which faced Cardiff last week. Mike Hathaway starts at fullback with Mike Callow recalled at centre. Lewis Evans partners Tom Rowlands in the half backs. Up front Gardner keeps faith with his starting front row but Andrew Waite partners James Richards in the boiler house. David McGuigan makes his first start in the back row.
