Both West and East Premiership Groups now come together in the second half of the season. We finished in 5th spot in the West Group so will carry forward 4pts in the start of this series of 15 fixtures. Our opponents Ebbw Vale carry forward 2pts from the East group.
So, it's up the Heads of the Valleys to Ebbw Vale on Saturday where I'm sure the hosts will be a very tough nut to crack. The boys were very disappointed with their performance last Saturday at St Helens so will be looking for a big improvement in this fixture. Let's hope we see it on Saturday.
Our hosts had an excellent win last time out at home to high flying Bedwas so their confidence will be high going into this game. They have had a really hit & miss season so far but I'm sure the new coaching staff who are about to take up the reins at Eugene Cross will be keen to get a win under their belts as this series of fixtures start.
So, we should be in for another exciting clash with both sides looking to start the new year off on a positive. As always, we look forward to your ongoing support and can I on behalf of everyone at Llanelli RFC wish you all a very happy new year.
