Its a return to Principality Premiership rugby this was as Bedwas buoyed their excellent first half performance last time out against Bridgend make the long journey to Colwyn Bay in good spirits. Head Coach Steve Law was delighted with last week’s performance, especially the first half when his side ran in 6 tries to lead by 43 points at the interval.
“I was delighted with the accuracy we showed last week” said Law, “We are expecting another tough challenge this week and we have prepared accordingly.”
