Simon Humberstone resumes club duties with Pontypridd.
Pontypridd host Aberavon in a Premiership this evening seeking instant revenge for an away defeat to the same opponents just four days earlier. (KO 7:15pm)
Ponty travelled to the Talbot Athletic Ground last Saturday and came unstuck in what was a classic 'game of two halves', yielding a 3-20 interval lead to ultimately lose by 29-27.
That result did not affect the two clubs' league standings, Pontypridd clinging on to top spot and a resurgent Aberavon still in tenth place. It did however cause a stutter in Ponty's quest for a second successive league title, and knowing that their games in hand over the chasing pack, of which the Aberavon return leg is one, must be won.
Ponty make no fewer than 11 changes in personnel from the starting line up against the Wizards on Saturday.
