Carmarthen Quins
2017/2018 Principality Premiership
Quins 36 v 33 Newport
14 April 2018 - The Park, Carmarthen

Match Preview


After the thrilling victory over Llandovery last Saturday we now get back to league action with a trip to high-flying Carmarthen Quins.  They suffered a shock defeat away to Bridgend last time out but still sit second in the table. We always get exciting games at Carmarthen and they, like us, play a fast, open style of rugby.

The Black & Ambers have to forget about the big day on the 29th April and concentrate on improving their league position.  The physios have been busy working on some bruised and battered bodies but it is hoped that the majority of the squad will be available for selection.

Team will be selected after Thursday’s training session.

Newport: Nicky Boyce,  Henry Palmer, Nicky Thomas, Andrew Mann, Dan Partridge, Morgan Burgess, Josh Reid, Alex Everett, Owen Davies, Matt O'Brien, Harri Lang, Haydn Palmer, Chay Smith, Elliot Frewen, Geraint O'Driscoll.

Replacements: Evan Whitson, Matt Prosser, Tom Piper, Joe Bartlett, Joe Cullimore, Ryan James, Haydn Simons, Jon Morris.


Referee:  Wayne Davies

AR1:  Peter Evans

AR2:  Richard Thomas

Kick-off:  2:30

Please note that the supporters’ coach will be leaving Rodney Parade at 10:40
