Match Preview

Team to face RGC (H)

Bridgend Ravens host RGC at the Morganstone Brewery Field on Saturday afternoon in the final game of the Principality Premiership West Conference (2:30pm).

The Gogs currently lead the standings heading into the second half of the season, where their first match will be against Bridgend at Zip World Stadium next Saturday. Bridgend are firmly fixed in sixth position with no potential of finishing higher, but will be looking to give their supporters some festive cheer, aswell as avenging October’s last minute defeat to RGC in North Wales.

There are a few changes to the squad which took to the field last time for Bridgend three weeks ago. Ed Doe, Aaron Grabham and Mike Powell maintain their position in the back three with Joseph Gatt and Nathan Edwards again paired in the centre. Cai Evans and Connor Tantum are the half backs.

The back row sees Adam O’Driscoll, Tom Morgan and Owain Lloyd line up together. Kieran Martin and Chris John are selected in the second row with a front row of Garyn Daniel, Owen Thomas and Rhodri Apsee.
