The match of the season thus far is expected at the Gnoll when unbeaten leaders Neath take on last season's champions, Newport. Having had three points docked and losing at Ebbw Vale last week, Newport will see this as make or break to topple the Welsh All Blacks.
Just as interesting as the top match will be the Aberavon-Llanelli clash as the four-match run of the Wizards will be on the line against the ten-match winning streak of the second -placed Scarlets. Bedwas, without a home win, take on free-scoring Swansea and Ebbw Vale look for another home win as they face the speedy Cardiff back division.
While Cross Keys and Llandovery meet in a mid-table battle, there is a basement struggle at Llanharan where bottom club Caerphilly are the visitors in an important match. Other strongly-contested games will be between Bridgend against Pontypool and Pontypridd at home to Newbridge.

Twelve young people have been selected to follow a one year WRU Coach Core apprenticeship programme. Coach Core was set up by the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry as part of the Olympics legacy in 2012 and the Duke of Cambridge was on hand to meet the apprentices on their first day in the job. The programme has been funded by the Hunter Foundation.
The WRU has launched a campaign to create a long term legacy for Welsh club rugby by highlighting the advantages of volunteering. Rhian Edwards, a volunteer at Seven Sisters, has enjoyed many benefits of her volunteering at a grassroots rugby club including being part of the Rugby World Cup volunteer workforce after being nominated by the WRU - and the WRU is asking for more people to develop their 'Welsh rugby roots'.
