Rygbi Gogledd Cymru 1404
2017/2018 Principality Premiership
RGC 1404 43 v 36 Newport
12 May 2018 - Parc Erias, Colwyn Bay

Match Preview


One more game for Newport before everyone can take a hard-earned break.  It’s been a disappointing end to the season as the very busy schedule has meant injuries, squad rotation and the introduction of permit players has seen the team losing that continuity that had served us well.  We have a 100% record against RGC – played one, won one and this will be our first visit to Parc Eirias.

RGC have gone well since their promotion to the Premier Division and they are currently in the top half of the table.  Every away game means a long trip and an overnight stay for them so their success hasn’t been easy.

The Black & Ambers will be looking to end the season on a high note and the team selected is certainly capable of getting a win. 

Newport: John Lavender, Henry Palmer, Garin Harris, Joe Bartlett, Dan Partridge, Morgan Burgess, Rhys Jenkins, Alex Everett, Ryan James, Matt O’Brien, Elliot Frewen, Tom Pascoe, Chay Smith, Jon Morris, Geraint O’Driscoll.

Replacements:  Matt Prosser, Will Evans, Tom Piper, Rhys Cresswell, Dudley Stead, Owen Davies, Haydn Palmer, Harri Lang.
