Cardiff v Ebbw Vale Team News

Cardiff entertain Ebbw Vale at the Arms Park on Saturday looking to get back to winning ways in the league.

Following the fantastic Cup triumph on Sunday the Blue & Blacks are forced to make several changes with lots of players picking up knocks in the Principality Stadium win over Merthyr

Head Coach Steve Law said “it was a great day on Sunday. Bringing the Cup back to the Arms Park meant a great deal to all involved. But now we go back to business in the league. There are a few players struggling with injury after the weekend, but that gives opportunity for others to press their case. Ebbw will be a major test for us but we still want to finish in the highest position we can. I would like to thank all those clubs who have allowed us to permit players not only for this game, but for all their help throughout the season”.

Edd Howley will become the latest player to win his Club Cap, joining Matthew Powell and Ben Thomas from the team who played on Sunday. Should Kieron Brown come off the bench he will also join this elite group.
