After ending the losing run by gaining a great win over Swansea in the cup last week, the Black & Ambers are straight in to league action on Sunday. The team will be confident although they are aware that it’s the bottom team against the top team. Aberavon have been a very good outfit for many years and play an expansive, attractive brand of rugby. They will also be looking for revenge after last season’s close defeat in the Welsh Cup Final.
Sunday’s game is an important milestone for two of our players with Kyle Tayler making his 100th appearance in the famous Black & Amber and Elliot Frewen making his 200th appearances. Both players are very popular members of the squad and we all hope that they can celebrate with a win – and a try each would be brilliant.
Newport: Thomas Davies, Henry Palmer, Garin Harris, Josh Skinner, Ryan Woodman, Kyle Tayler, George Young, Ben Roach, Luke Crane, Will Reed, Elliot Frewen, Matt O’Brien (Capt.), Cameron Lewis, Lloyd Lewis, Ioan Davies.
Replacements: Jack Gillard, Joe Popple, Luke Yendle, Craig Hudd, Josh Reid, Dafydd Buckland, Chay Foster-Smith, Jon Morris.
