Both teams got their league campaigns off to a solid start, Llandovery winning their first two matches before going down to defeat at Cross Keys last weekend. Pontypridd meanwhile, have maintained a perfect record so far, with four wins from four games seeing them head up the Premiership table.
Llandovery are unbeaten at home so far this season and will be hoping for revenge after Pontypridd completed the double over them last season. Dale McIntosh's side secured a 19-12 win at Church Bank followed by a home 21-11 win in February. This season, Pontypridd have tasted success against Llandovery with a 21-9 pre-season win and a comprehensive victory in the Foster's National Sevens final.
As they look to maintain their recent record, Pontypridd make a remarkable 13 changes from the starting line-up that claimed a bonus point home win over Newport. Promising Blues Academy youngsters Aled Summerhill, Garyn Smith and hooker Liam Belcher all start with Dai Flanagan returning to the influential role of fly-half.
Skipper Chris Dicomidis and tight head prop Keiron Jenkins are the two constants in selection, both having started every game so far this season. Llandovery include Aaaron Warren on the right wing.
