Neath RFC

Congratulations to the Neath-based contingent of prop Lewys Jones (Swansea Valley and Nevers), hooker Ollie Burrows (Neath Athletic and Exeter) and back rower Tristan Davies (Bryncoch and Ospreys Academy) who won their caps as Wales defeated Italy  25-8 in their opening match of the delayed Six Nations tournament.

Also prominent in the Wales pack were two sons of former Neath favourites in lock Dafydd Jenkins (Hywel) and No.8 Carwyn Tuipulotu (Kati). Although the match was scrappy, the victory will have brought quiet smiles of satisfaction to the Wales coaching team which included ex-Neath and Wales prop Paul James.
