Newport prepare to face Ebbw Vale at The Stadium on the back of a very good performance at Cardiff Arms Park. Although the run of bonus point wins came to an end it was a very satisfying outcome against a good Cardiff side. Conditions are likely to be very different on Saturday with rain forecast and a heavy pitch expected. The Black & Ambers will need to adapt to maintain their winning run.
Ebbw Vale are having a fine season with their winning run of seven games brought to an end by Gwent rivals Pontypool. They now sit in fourth place in the Indigo Premier League, five points below second placed Newport. These two teams know each other very well and this is sure to be a tasty encounter.

Replacements: Tom Workman, Wade Langley, Clay Gibbons, Nick Thomas, Josh Reid, Rhys Jenkins, Che Hope, Oli Andrew.
