Neath RFC

Neath’s previous league game was against Maesteg Harlequins at The Gnoll and on Saturday they play the Quins again, this time at South Parade (kick off 2.30pm) where they know the Quins will be a different proposition.

Since their heavy loss at The Gnoll, the Quins have played twice, beating Cardiff Metropolitan (40-26) and losing to Trebanos (10-47) and Neath expect to face a stronger combination this time around.

As usual, Neath make a number of squad changes from the side which beat Quins last time and it will be a big day for Neath captain Ryan Evans who makes his 100th appearance and for prop Jack Powell who is half-way there on his 50th.
