Neath RFC

NEATH are back in the Premiership !

The Blacks returned to Welsh club rugby’s top echelon with a 7-tries to 2 victory at Pandy Park  to nail down second place behind Pontypool.

Neath tries came from winger Llewellyn Hawkes (2), hooker  Sion Crocker (2), replacement Josh Clark, prop Tim Ryan and No.8 David Griggs who ran half the length of the field. Full back Lewis Evans (4) and outside-half Steff Williams kicked conversions

Neath secretary Mike Price said, “Congratulations to captain Ryan Evans and his team who have always played for each other and have kept going over this long-drawn out campaign. A word of thanks too to our coaches and, of course, to our supporters who have never wavered and have stuck by the team. The celebrations must be put on hold for a while as we still have two games to go.”
