The Black & Ambers head to The Talbot Athletic Ground on Saturday to try to build on their bonus point win over Swansea last time out. Although the team worked hard for the win it wasn’t a perfect performance and there was plenty for the coaches and squad to work on. Aberavon are well placed in the league sitting in fourth position with 50 points. After starting the season with seven straight wins their form this year is a bit inconsistent, although they are still a very good side.
