Match Preview

Wanderers look for two in a row




“Nothing like a win to pick the spirits up” commented coach Matthew Bolton “We now have to carry it onto Saturday and maintain the momentum that last week’s games gave us”

“We’ve strengthened the squad this week with the return of our captain and this week we actually had selections to make! A real headache for the first time in a long time but great all the same” added manager Luke Burton. 

Captain Alex Luff returns for the visit of Pontypool in the only change to the forwards from the side that beat Llanharan last week. Ryan Davies continues at number 8 and Blues academy player Will Griff John plays again at tight-head. Behind the scrum Charlie Johnson returns to partner Mike Smith in the centre and Josh Hurley and Mike Stephens continue on the wings after impressing in the win. Tim Cronin continues at scrum half and Owen Marshall has to be content with a place on the bench after missing the Llanharan game.
