The Wizards have to try and lift a long-standing bogey as their last 22 trips to Pontypool Park have produced 21 losses and a draw since winning 17-16 there on October 8, 1980. in that match, both the current Pontypool coach Steve Jones and the former Aberavon coach Chris O'Callaghan were in the opposing packs.
Swansea dreadful away form is a contrast to their home run and their spirit will be tested at Llanharan, while Newbridge face a Gwent derby at home to Cross Keys after conceding 133 points in three games and losing coaches Mike Watkins and Jonathan Westwood in successive weeks.
Llandovery have not played for over three weeks in the league and have not won since November 13. They entertain Pontypridd at home and bottom club Caerphilly are also in the west, at Carmarthen Quins, having won only twice this season.
Bedwas lost 36-15 at Bridgend in September and have gone down three times in their last four outings, so wll be hard pressed to hold the Brewery Field boys, who are on a four-match winning streak.
