Neath visit Ebbw Vale at Eugene Cross Park on Saturday where they will run into some familiar faces on the Ebbw Vale coaching team in ex-coach Lyn Jones and ex-outside-half Matthew McCarthy while fitness guru Gareth Walton hails from Cimla.
Interception tries seem to be the rage in the Premiership this year and four-times champions Neath conceded two against Cardiff at The Gnoll last week, resulting in a 25-27 defeat.
The Welsh All Blacks name the same squad as last week but there are likely to be changes in the starting line-up.
"Players and fans are frustrated by the way things have gone so far because all three of our defeats could so easily have gone our way and been wins for us," said Director of rugby Rowland Phillips.
"But we have trained well this week and are looking forward to going to Ebbw Vale with a positive approach to the game in the wet.
"Ebbw Vale are always a force to be reckoned with. In personnel terms, there are a number of close links engaged in Saturday's game and for Neath it is a case of familiarity breeding a healthy respect for Ebbw Vale and their approach to rugby."
