Neath RFC

After a week’s break, Neath visit Newport on Saturday (kick off 2.30pm) and, having played each other since 1878/79 at Rodney Parade, this will be the first time the two clubs have met at Newport Stadium (NP19 4PT).

The starting line-up shows several squad changes from that which did duty at Pontypool last time out.

Behind the scrum changes see full back Aaron Bramwell, centre Kieran Charles, outside-half Steff Williams and scrum-half Chris Morgans return to the starting line-up. Up front, prop Mason Morgan makes his long-awaited return and Fergus Kneath comes into the back row.
