Cardiff – Neath team news

Cardiff will be looking to finish the home league season with a flourish as they take on Neath at the Arms Park in the last home game for 2018/19.

Having gained a bonus point in the last game against Ebbw Vale the Blue & Blacks will be looking to keep the pressure on at the top of the table. Speaking of the Ebbw Vale game, Head Coach Steve Law said “it was a very good performance on Saturday and some very good team tries. We want to finish in the best possible position in the league this season and to do that we will need to perform to Saturday’s standard once again.”

There are not too many changes in the backs from the side that started the game on Saturday where Morgan Griffiths replaces Dan Fish. Up front there are 4 changes. Kieron Brown and Ian Jenkins start in the front row, Kieran Martin and James Murphy the changes in the second row.

On the bench Will Rees-Hole will be looking to make an appearance which will bring up his 100th game for the Blue & Blacks.
