Principality Premiership predictions

All Wales Sport's Carl Field looks ahead to tonight's action in the Principality Premiership...

Aberavon v Bridgend (7.15pm)

It looks like it could be a long hard winter for the Ravens, who are up against it after a tough start that has seen them lose four out of five while the Wizards, who have the same record, have targeted this game and home advantage should pay dividends for Jason Hyatt’s side tonight.

Prediction: Aberavon by 15 points

Carmarthen Quins v Ebbw Vale (7.30pm)

This is the pick of this evening’s games with Ebbw Vale – with five wins out of six so far – the surprising front runners in the Principality Premiership. The Steelmen have won all three of their games on the road so far and another win here would be the biggest scalp of the lot. However I expect the Quins to record another win against the Gwent side and maintain their 100 per cent record.

Prediction: Carmarthen Quins by 7 points

Cross Keys v Llanelli (7.30pm)

Cross Keys will be looking for a reaction after their shock defeat at Neath where they tossed away a 19-7 half time lead before eventually going down 32-19 at the Gnoll. Llanelli head coach Anthony Buchanan admits his side looked rusty in their defeat at Newport – their first game for nearly a month – having started to look as if they were clicking into gear before the break for the British & Irish Cup.

Prediction: Cross Keys by 5 points

Llandovery v Pontypridd (7.30pm)

The champions haven’t been in rip roaring form of late – and only squeezed past Bedwas at Sardis Road last time out. I predict their 100 per cent record will go at Church Bank tonight – where they also lost in pre-season. Wing Richard Williams – who bagged a brace that day – will be looking to inspire the Drovers once again.

Prediction: Llandovery by 3 points
