Neath stalwart Gareth Llewellyn will come face to face with one of his former clubs when the Welsh All Blacks prepare for the new season.
Wales' record breaking forward has been granted a benefit season and will lead his side against NEC Harlequins at The Gnoll on Tuesday, 20 August in the last of three high profile friendlies.
The game against the Quins will also see the launch of Neath's new 'Family Stand'.
