The third round of the Women's Super League takes place this Sunday with a top of the table clash between Llanelli and North Wales at Stradey Park.
The two teams are separated by point's difference after Llanelli beat UWIC a fortnight ago, 36-24. North Wales will be hoping for their third win following a convincing victory against Swansea in the first round and a close game against Pontypridd in which Elen Evans scored the winning try five minutes from time. The Fly Half scored five tries this week for Dolgellau RFC making her the top scorer in the National League.
Pontypridd travel to Swansea where both teams will be looking for their first win of their Super League campaigns. Pontypridd will want to secure a victory after losing their first two games against UWIC and North Wales in the dying minutes. Welsh International, Lowena Sandercock has transferred from Swansea to Pontypridd bringing further experience to the Ponty back line.
Newport are at home to UWIC. The Newport side contains the experienced internationals, Dawn Mason and Louise Rickard, who have both decided to change positions this season. Mason formerly a prop and Rickard a centre, are both vying for the open-side flanker position. Newport also contains some exciting youngsters in the form of U19s scrum-half Becky Davies of Brecon and Blaenau Gwent's centre partnership of Christie Thompson and Kim Boaler, all of whom will be making early bids for inclusion in the Wales U19s squad playing Canada and USA in Florida next February.
