Third placed Bridgend welcome local rivals Cardiff to the Brewery Field on Saturday with the near-neighbours experiencing contrasting fortunes this season. The Arms Park outfit currently sit third from bottom in Wales' top flight while the Ravens are flying high in third.
At the Memorial Ground Glamorgan Wanderers clash with top-of-the-table Neath after a 62-0 demolition of Division One's Ystrad Rhondda in last weekend's Konica Minolta Cup game.

Welsh Cup holders Llanelli play host to Cross Keys at Stradey Park with a point to prove after they were dumped out of the cup a fortnight ago. The Keys are still alive and kicking in the competition however thanks to a 20-19 victory over Bedwas last Saturday. But as league duties resume there will not be much

Pontypridd currently sit in fourth place, just three points behind the Ravens with a game in hand.
On the coast Swansea go head-to-head with Ebbw Vale with the two sides level on points at the lower end of the table. And in the day's other game sixth placed Newport travel to Carmarthen Park to play second-from-bottom Carmarthen Quins
