There will be several rearranged matches this weekend, but only two
games are scheduled in the Premier Division, when Caerphilly entertain
Ebbw Vale and Pontypridd host Swansea, both on Friday evening.
A Pontypridd win would take them over Aberavon into third place in the
table, while Caerphilly could move into fifth, but the club keenest to
take three points must be Ebbw Vale, who are currently only one point
off the bottom of the division.
In Division One, there will be three matches played with second-placed
Llanharan hoping to retain their unbeaten record over battling Rumney at
Riverside Park, while Blackwood meet Beddau in what could be a close
call and Carmarthen Athletic hope to have a few shocks for third-placed
Whitland on Friday evening.
There will be a few matches played in the lower divisions with Merthyr
looking to pull clear of Builth Wells in Two East if they defeat Ystrad
Rhondda, though Builth have games in hand. Risca take on Croesyceiliog
and in Two West Pencoed hope to play a match away to Aberavon Quins.
Division Three East will have Newport Saracens hoping to move closer to
the top against Abergavenny and leaders Brynithel travel to bottom club
Llanhilleth, while Talywain taken on Cwmbran and Pontypool Utd meet
Abercarn. In the South-West Trebanos v Bryncoch and Skewen v Ystalyfera
are the games due to play and in the South-East Tonyrefail meet Taffs
The only division four match is in the South-West when Amman Utd hope
their pitch is fit to meet Briton Ferry and in Five South-West Tonna bid
to climb closer to the top if they can dismiss Neath Athletic.
Cup rugby is due for Sunday when Brynmawr take on Bridgend and Cross
Keys meet Aberavon in the Quarter-finals of the Konica Minolta Cup. Both
matches are set for 2.30pm starts.
