With Jonathan Spratt and Steve Tandy stepping up to Ospreys duty in Dublin, Neath will make changes. However, the stomach bug that sidelined Martin Jones, Martyn Morgan and James Merriman over Christmas has abated while flanker Andy Llewellyn returns after injury. 17 year old winger Kristian Phillips who made a highly promising debut against Aberavon is also included.
Coach Rowland Phillips said, "We were delighted to get the maximum 10-point return from our Christmas games. The 43-12 win over Aberavon was witnessed by an excellent crowd and the vast majority of the spectators went away happy so we hope to see them back for the Llanelli game.
"The 27-14 success at Swansea was a reward for the hard work of the team as a whole. Playing two games in four days is never easy especially when they are local derbies and the boys showed tremendous spirit in keeping going to clinch the bonus point right at the end.
"We are excited about the visit of Llanelli who invariably pose a challenge and again it will be a question of us putting in the hard work and seeking to improve from game to game."
