Match Preview

Aberavon Preview

Our last two Principality Premiership West league fixtures are on the road. First up this weekend we take on the Wizards, Aberavon RFC at the Talbot Athletic ground this coming Sunday afternoon. The game is scheduled to kick off at 2.30pm.

The boys ground out a win last Friday at the 'Parc' against Neath and now look to continue their winning run by taking the spoils against the Wizards. Whilst the team for this game is yet to be announced, one thing is for sure, that there will be a vastly different team taking the field in Aberavon compared to the one that ran out at Parc-y-Scarlets back in September. We ran out winners that afternoon in a really entertaining game but with a number of players currently in South Africa with the Scarlets and numerous injuries the coaches will once again look to give younger players from within the region the opportunity to wear the Llanelli shirt. So, a big week ahead preparing for what will undoubtedly be a very tough challenge!

The Wizards sit just below us in the table and with just the two fixtures left in the West Group before the league comes together will be looking to finish on a high. They've lost their last three games all very narrowly so I'm sure as this is their last home fixture this year they will want to win it big time. They are a well organised, strong side who can threaten from anywhere on the Park - we will need to be on our game to nullify them!

So, Sunday afternoon rugby then, look forward to seeing you all in Aberavon.
