Last week, four-times Principality Premiershiip champions Neath cut loose in the second-half to overpower Cross Keys 62-20 but they face a tough trip to Bedwas with changes expected in the starting line-up.
Injuries and other unavailabilties meant that the Welsh All Blacks were down to the bare bones last week but they have no plans to repeat the inclusion of coaches Arwel Thomas and Pat Horgan and veteran prop Andrew Howell this week.
Among the returnees, the Welsh All Blacks welcome back Wayne Mitchell, Bryan Shelbourne, Gareth James, Martin Jones and Neil Edwards who all missed the win over Cross Keys.
Director of Rugby Rowland Phillips said. "Bedwas is never an easy place to go and their loss at Swansea last time out was probably not a good thing from our point of view.
"They are always a stiff challenge but it is a challenge we are looking forward to. They have some swift backs and their forwards will contest every ball so we'll need to match them at every phase.
"As for Neath, we can take heart from last week's 62-20 win over Cross Keys. To score 9 tries against any side in the Premiership is no mean feat and one from which we will draw confidence.
"But nobody is getting carried away at The Gnoll because that is not our way and the reality is that, taken as a whole, the game was much closer than the score suggested.
"We are putting into place some new systems this season because we cannot stand still. The squad is working hard to adjust and the latter part of last week's game was very encouraging. Our aim is to continue to improve game by game."
