Repeat of 2013 Grand Final this Saturday

Round 3 of the South Wales Conference takes place this weekend with the big game of the weekend seeing Valley Cougars taking on Torfaen Tigers in a repeat of last season’s Grand Final.

 

Torfaen Tigers won that game and currently top this year’s table with two high scoring wins from their opening two fixtures.

 

Chair Rob Davies knows that this week’s fixture is a different kettle of fish.

 

“We have started the season well, with two good wins,” he said. “However I am sure the Cougars will come at us all guns blazing as they wish to erase the pain of defeat (in the Grand Final) last time out.”

 

Cougars’ coach Paul Emanuelli will not only want to put the record straight from last season but see a good response from his troops to their last minute defeat at Bridgend Blue Bulls last week.

 

Conversely Bridgend will be looking to build on their win last week as they take on newcomers Gwendraeth Valley Raiders. Head Coach Lee Harben-Jones is in a buoyant mood after seeing his side claim their first win of the season last time out.

 

“We are improving as a side,” he said. “We have prepared well this week and are looking forward to our first ever fixture against the Raiders.”

 

In the final fixture of the day Cardiff Spartans host Newport Titans at Llandaff North RFC as both sides look for their first win of the season.
