NEATH HANDED BYE IN WRU CUP
Neath have a bye in the first round of the 2016/17 WRU Cup.
An approach has already been made to Narberth to play the return of Saturday’s fixture on first round day so followers of both clubs will be able to enjoy rugby on that date.
Local clubs Glynneath and Skewen experienced mixed fortunes, Glynneath having a home draw against Cross Keys while Skewen face a trip to Premier champions Ebbw Vale.
The full draw is :-
