‘Another week, another dollar’ as the saying goes as Bedwas entertain Llanelli RFC in another game which both sides will be eager to win to relieve the pressure of the spectre of relegation.
Bedwas will be seeking a third successive win but are under no illusions of the task as alluded to by Head Coach Stefan Sankala when he gave his thoughts on the game. “After securing our tight victory last week we are certainly motivated to continue the momentum. Llanelli will come full of confidence after a narrow loss last week and will have certainly targeted us as a must win game” he said. “However, we are still very much realistic and know that another win will at least provide some daylight in the survival race for a couple of weeks at least. In terms of our improvement we hope to tighten up our execution in the final third and remain competitive for the full 80 minutes.”
Whatever happens this is a must win for both clubs and one that will go down to the wire” he added.
There are a few tweaks to the side which defeated Cross Keys last time out. With Nathan Hudd missing out through injury Craig Hudd moves to Number 8 with James Richards at blind side flanker to partner Jonathan Armitage in the back row. Jonathan Davies moves from bench to second row to partner Gareth Allen but the front row is unchanged.
