2016/2017 Principality Premiership
Newport 22 v 29 Cross Keys
03 May 2017 - Rodney Parade, Newport
Cross Keys

Match Preview


The Black & Ambers go into this game knowing that their place in the play-offs is secure but there is still a bit to do to ensure a home tie in the semi-finals.  Hopefully the errors made in last Saturday’s game can be eliminated and we will see the form shown in the previous five games.

Games between Newport and Cross Keys are rarely free-flowing try festivals but the weather forecast is good and if both teams approach the game in the right spirit then we might see a cracking game.

A couple of players who were unavailable for last Saturday are up for selection so we could see some changes.  The team will be selected following Tuesday’s training session.

Newport:  Nick Boyce, Will Evans, Garin Harris, Adam Brown (c), James Little, Rhodri Jones, Kyle Tayler, Rhys Jenkins, Owen Davies, Matt O'Brien, Wes Cunliffe, Tom Pascoe, Tom Riley, Jon Morris, Geraint O'Driscoll.

Replacements: Evan Whitson, Matt Prosser, Tom Piper, Dan Mock, Lennon Greggains, Ryan James, Llywarch Ap Myrddin, Haydn Simons.    


Referee:  Ben Whitehouse

AR1:  Simon Rees

AR2:  Peter Mortimer

Kick off:  7:30 PM
