TEAM NEWS & SUPPORTERS’ INFORMATION – NEATH v PONTYPOOL (at Ebbw Vale RFC) – WRU CHAMPIONSHIP CUP SEMI-FINAL SATURDAY, April 1st, 2023 KICK OFF 2.30PM
Neath take on Pontypoool in the semi-final of the WRU Championship Cup at Ebbw Vale RFC on Saturday (kick off 2.30pm) with Ystrad Rhondda awaiting the winners in the final on Sunday, April 23rd.
Neath have been winning without exactly flowing in recent weeks and they know that an altogether more rounded, mistake-free and disciplined approach will be needed to succeed on Saturday.
The All Blacks have a couple of key men missing including skipper Ryan Evans who is out with a hamstring injury and Neath know that it will take their best to topple the red-hot favourites who have amassed 200 points in their last three games.
