PLEASE NOTE THAT OWING TO BUILDING WORK AT BARGOED PARK THIS GAME WILL BE PLAYED ON THE 3G PITCH AT YSTRAD MYNACH CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE.
Newport travel to Bargoed Park knowing that a win puts them in the play-offs and gives them a great chance of a top-two finish and a home tie. There could still be a chance of winning something this season! The league structure means that we will face Bargoed twice although both games will be away. They miss out on the pleasure of visiting Rodney Parade and it would have been nice to welcome our former coach, Sven Cronk.
Our trip to Bargoed in January ended in a one point loss after an error strewn game where anything that could go wrong did. The weather forecast for Saturday is good and a dry day and a firm surface would suit our high tempo game. Let’s hope we see a good game played in the right spirit.
Team will be selected after Thursday’s training session.
Newport: Nick Boyce, Will Evans, Garin Harris, Adam Brown ©, Dan Partridge, Rhodri Jones, Kyle Tayler, Rhys Jenkins, Ryan James, Arwel Robson, Elliot Frewen, Tom Pascoe, Tom Riley, Jon Morris, Llywarch Ap Myrddyn.
Replacements: Matt Prosser, Henry Palmer, Tom Piper, Dan Mock, James Little, Matt O’Brien, Chay Smith, Haydn Palmer.
