Here we go then – the start of another season for Newport Rugby Football Club.  We would like to thank our friends at Bedwas RFC for hosting this pre-season friendly.  These games give our established players a chance to get up to speed ready for a tough run of league  encounters and give some potential Newport players an opportunity to show that they can play at the level required in the Premier League.
