Neath RFC

Neath travel to meet Championship leaders and favourites Pontypool on Saturday (kick off 2.30pm).

Both teams go into the match with two bonus point wins behind them but an away win would be a major shock as last time there the Blacks were well beaten.

Back row men Morgan Kneath and Dyfan Ceredig suffered injuries in last week’s 37-7 win over Bedwas so David Griggs comes in at No.8 and Jacob Blackmore switches to flanker. Prop Gareth Lloyd and lock Jon Barley return to the pack while Nicky Griffiths comes in at scrum-half.

Replacements – 16 Sion Crocker, 17 Jack Powell, 18 Sam Martin, 19 Macauley Griffiths, 20  Aaron Bramwell
