ANOTHER PIECE IN THE JIGSAW

Neath have further strengthened their forward resources ahead of the 2016/17 with the signing of tight head prop Ryan Thomas who joins from Swansea.

The 27 year old is a product of Neath Athletic RFC. Team Manager Martyn Morris said, “I am delighted to be able to add Ryan to our squad. Ryan is someone I know well having coached him for 6 seasons during his formative years with the Colts and the Athletic first team. He has the potential to become a real crowd-pleaser at The Gnoll.

“The Neath squad has reported back to training and includes our 11 new signings with Gareth Morris, Matthew Pearce, Gavin Evans, Aaron Grabham, Rory Morgan-Williams, Josh Guy, Neil White, Ifan Phillips, Ryan Thomas, Lyndon Bateman, Jordan Collier all eager to impress.

“There are a couple of vacancies still to be finalised that will put the finishing touches to a new-look Neath squad that includes some exciting young talent as well as a couple of more experienced players and we believe all will do well for Neath.”
