Team news for the televised clash at Sardis Road

Bedwas make the short journey to in form Pontypridd on Saturday for a game to be shown live on S4C kick off being 5-15pm.

The selected side shows a few changes to that which played at Swansea last week. We welcome Dragons Academy outside half Evan Lloyd for his first start for Bedwas and back rower Bradley Hill comes in for his first start of the season following injury.

Ahead of the game Head Coach Stefan Sankala opined “Saturday will prove to be another challenging task for us given the form Ponty are finding recently. Their strength in depth and ability to be ruthless at home makes this encounter all the more difficult but we have prepared best we can this week. We find ourselves being stretched fully this in terms of player unavailability, but we are a resilient bunch and hope to put on a show in front of the Sardis Road faithful.”

This is the twenty three man line up:

15. Joseph Scrivens, 14. George Gasson, 13. Tom Hoppe, 12. Adam Williams, 11. Kane Teear-Bourge, 10. Dion McIntosh, 9. Luke Crane; 1. Brynley Toms, 2. Mike Dacey, 3. Chris Budgen, 4. Joe Davies, 5, Gareth Allen, 6. Jonathan Armitage, 7, Bradley Hill, 8. Dale Rogers ©

Replacements: 16. Tom Devine, 17. Sam Cochrane, 18. Ellis Evans, 19. Will Fishlock, 20. Josh Hayward, 21, Tom Rowlands, 22. Lewis Bowden, 23. Pat Lewis.

Sankala added “We will need to show real character with touches of quality right from the start or we could find ourselves in for a long evening.”
