The front row comprises Gareth Lloyd,Chris Morris and Zac Giannini with Ross O’Connor and Jon Barley locking them. Ciaran Comerford and Emyr Williams join captain Owain Morgan in the back row.
A strong-looking replacements’ bench comprises forwards Sion Crocker, Tim Ryan and Josh Clark and backs Elis Horgan and Aaron Bramwell
Neath’s latest trophy – the WRU Championship Cup – will be on parade so that supporters’ children can have their photograph taken with it.
