Pontypridd resume their league campaign with a home game against Ebbw Vale at Sardis Road this evening (KO 7:15pm).

Ebbw Vale in turn will be battling for survival in their relegation dogfight with Pontypool, all in all making for an intriguing must win encounter for both contestants.
As the games come thick and fast in league and cup, Pontypridd take an opportunity to rest some players and to utilise the strength in depth of their squad.
