Aberavon head coach Simon King has snapped up two more players for the forthcoming campaign.
Aberavon have pulled off the signing of 20-year-old Stefan Andrews, the talented former Tonmawr three-quarter, who, despite playing for the bottom club last season, finished second in the Premiership try tally with 14.
The much-sought after Andrews represented Wales in the FIRA 7s tournament in Russia recently and then travelled to South Africa to play for Tigerburg in Cape Town to further his rugby development.
Also joining the Wizards from Tonmawr is the 30-year-old lock forward Hywel Davies, a former Wales Rugby League player, who will be keen to establish himself in the Aberavon squad and challenge for honours this season.
Also joining the club is 21-year-old hooker Ieuan Davies, the former Cardiff player, who has played 18 times for Wales at different levels.
Beginning with Under 16 caps from Treorchy Comprehensive School in 2007, Davies joined the Blues Academy and represented Wales U18s in 2009, later starting senior rugby with Glamorgan Wanderers to make his final U18s appearance against Australia before moving to Cardiff and making Wales U20 appearances in the 2010 World Cup.
On the field, Aberavon begin their campaign on Saturday with a home match against Division One West champions, Tata Steel, who will play in the new Championship this season. (KO 2.30pm Talbot Athletic Ground).
The other pre-season friendlies are: at Moseley (3pm) on Saturday, August 18; home to Tondu (2.30m) on Saturday, August 25 and at Baglan (2.30pm) on Monday, August 27, as well as a cricket match on Sunday, August 12 for the Tom Maynard Charity at Port Talbot Town Cricket Club's Mansel Ground.
The WRU has teamed up with Crawshay's to tour Georgia in June. The side, which will be called the Crawshays WRU President's XV, will play Emerging Georgia twice, in a tour which supports the Welsh Government's efforts to grow relations between the two countries.
Wales Sevens are looking to re-group after a disappointing tournament last time out in South Africa. The next double leg in New Zealand and Las Vegas offers Gareth Williams a chance to redeem themselves.
Wales Women's head coach Rhys Edwards was at Llandovery to see the conclusion of an entertaining Women's Regional championship where any one of three teams were in contention for title glory on the last day of action.
