NEWPORT vs. CARDIFF

The Black & Ambers head to Sardis Road, Pontypridd, on Saturday to face old enemy, Cardiff, in the semi-final of the WRU Challenge Cup..  Supporters will be hoping that they achieve the win that will put them into the final at The National Stadium.  The team deserves success after playing some marvellous rugby this season but everyone knows it will not be easy.  Cardiff are also playing well and play a very similar style with a strong, mobile pack and some pacey backs.  Newport has beaten Cardiff three times this season but that will have no bearing on this cup fixture.
