Cross Keys – Cardiff – Team News

Cardiff travel to Pandy Park tomorrow (Friday) evening looking to get back to Premiership action after last week’s postponement.

The Blue & Blacks will be looking to consolidate second place but know this will not be easy. “Cross Keys on any day is not an easy task, but Pandy Park on a Friday on what will likely be a heavy pitch is always a tough ask. Cross Keys are tough to beat as they showed when we played them at the Arms Park earlier in the season, but we are growing as a group and this is the sort of challenge that will show us how far we have come in recent weeks.”

“There are a few changes to the side and that gives the whole squad an opportunity to show us what they can do, we also welcome Will Davies-King from the Academy into the side for the first time this season, and as ever we would like to thank Bedlinog RFC for their help again in providing cover for our absentees.”
