After losing their first four league games, albeit by very small margins, few would have given Newport a chance of making the league play-offs. Yet, we now have a real opportunity to achieve the league title. Last Saturday’s win over a strong Llandovery outfit, scoring more points against them than any other team this season, means we go into Sunday’s semi-final knowing that we can compete with and beat any team in the Premier Division. The black & Ambers were disappointed to lose to Cardiff in a very close Cup Final and will be well aware of the task that they face.
The Coaching Team’s options are reduced by injury and non-availability but they are still able to select a strong squad for this vital game.
Newport: Thomas Davies, Henry Palmer, Nathan Evans, Craig Hudd, Ryan Woodman, Rhys Jenkins Captain, Josh Reid, Ben Roach, Dafydd Buckland, Matt Bancroft, Elliot Frewen, Joe Westwood, Chay Foster-Smith, Jon Morris, Ioan Davies.
Replacements: Jack Gillard, Tom Workman, Luke Yendle, George Young, Kyle Tayler, Che Hope, Geraint O’Driscoll, Carwyn Penny.
Venue: Cardiff Arms Park
