TEAM NEWS & SUPPORTERS’ INFORMATION – NEATH v BEDDAU (AWAY) – SATURDAY, MAY 20th, 2023 – KICK OFF 2.30PM
Neath secured the second promotion spot in the WRU Championship by winning 45-12 at Cross Keys on Wednesday evening and the Blacks visit Beddau on Saturday (kick off 2.30pm).
It will be Neath’s penultimate game of the season and the Blacks will need to show mental fortitude if they are to finish in style.
Neath have been shuffling their resources over the last two months to keep the squad fit and charged in readiness for the promotion push so the starting line-up is one again freshened up with a host of changes.
Only three of Wednesday’s starters start again with several regulars back in action and full back Aled Brew will make his 50th appearance.
