MATT PEARCE BACK AT THE GNOLL

Neath have re-signed centre MATTHEW PEARCE who missed last season as he was completing his degree at Bristol University.

Matthew is currently building back his fitness by getting a few overs under his belt for Neath Cricket Club where he has been a regular performer since junior days.

In rugby terms, Neath certainly missed the 21 year old’s strength and direct running in midfield last season and, with a half-century of appearances for the Club already in the bag, he will add invaluable Premiership experience to what should be a strong area next season.
