Pontypridd appear to have lost their captain for the remainder of the season. Paul Matthews has been suffering with a shoulder problem that required corrective surgery. And the prognosis is that he is unlikely to return to action for up to eight months. Matthews, who won Wales Under-19 caps in 1996 and was in his first season as skipper, faces an operation to repair a severed tendon connecting the muscle to the shoulder joint. His place as club captain will be taken by New Zealand-born 34-years-old lock forward Dale McIntosh who led the club last season and who won two caps for Wales in 1996-97.
