Pontypridd's next engagement is a home British & Irish Cup pool tie against Birmingham & Solihull, to be played on Saturday (KO 2:30pm).
The contrast between the fortunes of the two opposing sides is significant. Pontypridd sit on top of their domestic league while the Bees are currently struggling at the bottom of the English Championship. Ponty have two wins out of two games played so far in the BIC, whilst the Bees have yet to get into action, with last weekend's opener at home to Doncaster Knights having been postponed.
Any such comparisons will prove meaningless once the action gets underway on Saturday, as Pontypridd team manager Richard Langmead well knows.
"We played the Bees in a pre-season friendly this season, and we are aware of their capabilities" said Langmead. "They have a big abrasive pack and will provide tough opposition. Any games against English Championship sides are going to be hard - we expect no different against Birmingham & Solihull".
Pontypridd have ventured to make changes from the starting line up that battled to a bonus point home win over Ayr last weekend.
Simon Humberstone and Kristian Baller will form a new half back partnership, likewise in the front row where Stuart Williams, Huw Dowden and WillGriff John will pack down together, lock Ryan Savage returns from injury, with Ed Siggery stepping in at blindside flanker.
Centre Gavin Dacey is back in club colours following a stint away with the Wales Sevens squad, and taking a place on the bench.
