RGC1404 – Cardiff team news

Cardiff travel to North Wales for the fourth time this year to play RGC1404 in a clash that could see the home side go top of the table.

The Blue & Blacks are currently four points clear of RGC (and two above Aberavon), but a Wizards loss and an RGC bonus point would see the North Wales side go top.

Speaking ahead of the game Head Coach Steve Law said “we have a lot still to work on. It’s great we are still winning but there are certain aspects of our game that aren’t right and these aspects keep repeating themselves. We have worked very hard in training on these this week and will be looking to put them right. The side again shows changes but that is a reflection of the competitiveness in the squad.

We know how tough it is to go to North Wales having been there a few times this year. We will need to expect a North Wales side that is will be very competitive and will give everything, their form has shown then doing that over the last few weeks. The Cup game earlier in the season will have long been forgotten and they will be after a win to put them at the top. “
