"Probably the toughest place to go in the league" was how Glamorgan Wanderers head coach Richard Hodges summed up Friday's trip to Sardis Road.
"Certainly we wouldn't pick an away fixture with Pontypridd as a way to rebuild our confidence following recent results," he added.
The Wanderers still search for their first league win of the year but stick with the squad that pushed Llanelli close at Parc y Scarlets last week. The only change to the starting line up sees Ben Rose return to the back row after suffering a concussion three weeks ago at Swansea. Lee Highgate retains the captaincy.
On the bench the Wanderers welcome back speedster Rory Budina and include promising young back Harry Allen for the first time this season.
