According to Pontypridd team manager Richard Langmead such records count for little and a tough encounter is expected on the wide open spaces of St Helens.
"We are always given a hard game at Swansea and despite their current league status we will be taking nothing for granted. They have a strong set piece and given a share of possession always seem to thrive on the good playing surface at St Helens.
"We expect a fast open game and will have to be at our best to come away with the result we need."
Adhering to a policy of squad rotation Ponty make no fewer than 10 changes, in personnel and positional, from the line up that started the home win over Newport last weekend. Tight head prop Bradley Thyer returns to club duties from the Wales Under 20 squad and flanker Rhys Shellard makes a comeback from recent injury.
