Swansea RFC vs Newport RFC

Another great performance on Saturday as the Black & Ambers scored six tries to beat rivals Cardiff in a vital league clash. Yet, once again, the victory came at a high cost with serious injuries to Josh Skinner, Luke Crane, Elliot Frewen and Cameron Lewis.  The squad is now stretched to the limit and balancing our resources between cup and league is going to be difficult.

Swansea are not having the best of seasons but in their last three games they have beaten Carmarthen Quins and lost narrowly to Llandovery and Ebbw Vale.  They will be tough opponents

Newport:  Josh Reynolds, James Benjamin, Dan Suter, Andrew Mann, Rhodri Jones, Rhys Jenkins, Josh Reid, Lennon Greggains, Che Hope, Will Reed, Deon Smith, Matt O’Brien (Capt.), Jon Morris, Ioan Davies, George Gladding.

Replacements:  Jack Gillard, Harry Fry, Tom Piper, George Young, Ben Roach, Geraint Watkin, Jack Brookes, Mathew Powell.
