Next up for the Black & Ambers is a Boxing Day trip to face an Ebbw Vale outfit who are going well in the league. Their recent victory over Pontypridd sees them move into fourth place – three places above Newport. It’s not just league points that are at stake with this one as Ebbw will be looking to complete the double over their neighbours

Looking at the weather forecast, conditions will be bad so both sides will need to adapt to a heavy pitch and a slippery ball.


Newport:  Thomas Davies, Henry Palmer, Garin Jenkins, Craig Hudd, Ryan Woodman, Lennon Greggains, Kyle Taylor, Ben Roach, Luke Crane, Will Reed, Oli Andrew, Matt O’Brien, Chay Foster-Smith, Jon Morris, Elliot Frewen.

Replacements:  Ellis Ship, Josh Reynolds, Nathan Evans, Alex Gray, Rhys Jenkins, Dan Hill, Dafydd Buckland, Harri Ackerman.
