A confident Newport squad heads to North Wales following a very satisfying victory against old rivals, Cardiff, last weekend.  The coaching team has impressed on the players that RGC are improving each game and they will need to be at the top of their game to get a good result at Parc Eirias.

The Black & Ambers are still without a dozen squad members because of injury and unavailability but there is strength in depth and several young players are making a claim for a regular starting place.

Newport:  Lewis Smout, Henry Palmer, Louis Jones, Josh Skinner, Joe Bartlett, Rhodri Jones, Josh Reid, Ben Roach, Luke Crane, Will Reed, Oli Andrew, Matt O’Brien, Deon Smith, Ryan Gardner, Haydn Simons.

Replacements:  Mathew Dwyer, Jamie Jeune, Dan Suter, Elliot Ferriman, Lennon Greggains, Geraint Watkin, George Gladding, Clayton Gullis
