Match Preview

Wanderers ring changes for trip to Newbridge





“To make 8 changes may seem radical at this stage of the season but we are searching for our best combinations” commented heads coach Matthew Bolton.

“We’ve lost some players through injury all ready but we are confident in those we have brought in” added manager Luke Burton.

For the first away trip of the season the Wanderers squad shows plenty of changes. Up front Owen Lloyd, Lloyd king and Luke Probert start but there is a vote of confidence in the young front row of Roberts, Lloyd and Jenkins. Behind the scrum Lloyd Chalke starts in the midfield with the number 10 jersey being given to new arrival Owen Thomas. Josh Hurley who was instrumental in our Youth team’s success gets a start at fullback and, after the shoulder injury to Rhys Griffiths, Garyn Lucas starts at scrum half.
