NEATH v MOUNTAIN ASH (AWAY) – THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 4th, 2021
Neath visit Mountain Ash on Thursday (kick off 7.15pm) for much-needed action ahead of the start of the league season on Saturday week.
The last time Neath played Mountain Ash was to help the “Old Firm” celebrate their centenary in 1975/76, Neath winning a hard-fought game 13-nil in teeming rain at the old Recreation Ground on September 24, winger Alan Rose and flanker Ralph Jones scoring tries, centre John Poole adding a conversion and a penalty.
Mountain Ash now play at the well-appointed Duffryn Pennar Park (Post Code CF45 4DA). Ryan Evans continues as captain while Sam Martin comes in on permit from Dunvant alongside Chris Morris and Kelvan Ashby while Ciaran Comerford vome back into the back row. The bench has yet to be finalised.
