Coach Patrick Horgan said, "We had a good win in the SWALEC Cup last Saturday but we know it will take another big team effort to succeed at Cardiff who are always a quality outfit. The boys are pulling together under captain Gareth Gravell who has been quite superb - one of several real strong-willed rugby men in our squad.
"One or two of our long-term injured are getting closer to fitness and it was good to have Gareth King and Ashleigh James back in action last week and, as the season goes on, we should only get stronger with youngsters like Jonny Davies, Peter Owen, Elliot Jones and Matthew Rees fitting in well over the last month or so.
"Cardiff beat Glamorgan Wanderers last week and they have good players throughout their team. We want to play and we are looking forward to the challenge."
