Pontypridd will play hosts to Newport in a Premiership tie on Saturday 15th October, the game at
Sardis Road kicking off at 2:30pm.
Ponty will be eager to make the most of home advantage against Gwent opposition in their next two fixtures, with
and Bedwas the visitors, as they seek to consolidate their status near the top of the league table. Newport
Bringing with them a strong squad, potentially enhanced by a Gwent Dragon input, and coached by two former
Sardis Road stalwarts in Sven Cronk and Jonny Bryant, will pose a real threat whatever the league standings. Newport
The Ponty squad will be depleted by a number of regional call ups to the Blues senior squad and a long standing injury list, the latest of which is winger Chris Clayton with a dead leg.
The strength in depth of the current squad however holds up, and is bolstered by the return to full fitness of centre Gavin Dacey following an ankle injury. Lock Chris Martenko continues in his temporary role as a replacement.
