Glamorgan Wanderers welcome back top try scorer Jamie Jones who has not figured since the opening game of the season, for the Principality Premiership clash against Newport.

In the pack Hodges shuffles his resources with Nick Kelly moving into the back row allowing Gareth Knight to come back into the second row.
On the bench the Wanderers have opted for experience with the inclusion of last years captain Matthew Bolton, Gareth Alexander, Mark Roper and Mike Grimes.
