Stuart Thomas goes on the charge in last week's game against Neath.
Following on from the opening Saturday's visit of Neath, Bedwas once again welcome visitors from West Wales, this time in the shape of Llanelli.
Looking ahead to the game Bedwas Head Coach Steve Law commented: "I am looking forward to giving Llanelli a warm welcome to Bedwas on Saturday for our second successive home game.
"Both teams had differing results last weekend. Llanelli put in a very impressive performance against Cross Keys and gained a convincing victory. We competed well against Neath but unfortunately didn't gain the win we had hoped for. My players are under no illusions of the task ahead after watching the Llanelli versus Keys game, however, I am expecting our first win."
For one member of the Bedwas team the match also has special significance. Former Scarlets Academy and Llanelli back rower Stuart Phillips is also looking forward to playing his former club. Phillips commented, "I am looking forward to playing my old club as they look to play a fast open game. I thought we were unlucky not to beat them at Bedwas last season and we're going all out for a win."
Of the team selected for Bedwas last week one player definitely missing will be scrum half James Pizey who damaged his medial ligaments in the closing stages of last weeks game and faces the possibility of missing the rest of the season.
In the pack Number 8 and club captain Hywel Jenkins was rated as 'doubtful' on Thursday due to a neck injury. Should he miss the game a reshuffling of the Bedwas back row would see Phillip Sargent unavailable for selection last week return to the team.
