Match Preview

Squad to face RGC (a)

Matt Silva has named the Bridgend Ravens squad to travel to North Wales to face RGC on Saturday afternoon (2:30pm).

Having hauled themselves out of the relegation places, Bridgend are in search of a third successive victory. This comes after Ospreylian rivals Aberavon and Neath were defeated (16-13 and 78-5 respectively). 

RGC are hovering in midtable and will be looking to bounce back after last weekend's home humbling to Swansea. The Whites crossed for five first half tries to stun the Gogs and take home a 17pts to 31 victory. Bridgend will be wary of the wounded animal as they go in search of their first ever win over RGC. 

The players trained on Thursday evening at the Morganstone Brewery Field after the Christmas period and a final decision on the starting team and replacements will be made prior to Friday evening's departure to Colwyn Bay.

Bridgend Squad (from):

Backs: Cai Evans, Aaron Grabham, Ashley Evans, Dewi Cross, Stuart Floyd Ellis, Morgan Jones, Nathan Edwards (capt), Dylan Moss, Jamie Murphy, Ryan Evans, Chris Williams, Connor Tantum

Forwards: Jordan Collier, Adam O'Driscoll, Tom Morgan, Aled Evans, Owain Lloyd, Ben Jones, Jack Pope, Shaun O'Rourke, Iestyn Merriman, Owen Thomas, Owen Jordan, Cai Lewis, Ollie Evans, Rhodri Apsee.
