In week six of what is scheduled to be a ten week competition, the leading South Wales Rugby League clubs will all be battling to keep their hopes alive of reaching the play-offs and ultimately, the Grand Final later in the summer.

 

Welsh Conference South reigning champions and this year’s leaders Torfaen Tigers travel to Cardiff Spartans looking to consolidate their top of the table position.

 

Tigers will not be taking their opponents lightly following their 66-30 defeat of Cardiff Demons on Wednesday and will hope to field a full strength side. Head Coach Jamie Williams feels his team have the ability to continue their winning ways.

 

“I’m pleased with the way things have shaped up this season,” said Williams, “But we must guard against complacency as we are not over the line yet.”

 

Newcomers Aber Valley Wolves face the experienced Valley Cougars in what should be a fierce Mid Glamorgan battle as both sides vie for the bragging rights. Cougars head coach Paul Emanuelli is preparing his side for a tough battle.

 

“The Valley Wolves have had an excellent first season at open age level,” he said “They have given many of the experienced sides in this league a real run for their money, we are looking forward to the game.”

 

Old foes Cardiff Demons welcome Bridgend Blue Bulls to St Peters RFC with the Demons hoping to put their training sessions on the practise field into action on the match field.

 

“We have trained hard,” said Demons’ head coach Dan Henderson “We are keen to take this to the playing arena and send our friends from Bridgend back west empty handed.”

 

Newport Titans entertain new boys Gwendraeth Valley Raiders hoping to get their season back on track after a heavy defeat by Torfaen Tigers last time out. Gwendraeth however will be hoping to continue their good spell of form, having won three of their first four games of their existence, and come away with the spoils.
