Welsh Conference South previews

There's another big set of fixtures in the Welsh Conference South this Saturday.

In the Welsh Conference South, Cougars A team will travel to Senghenydd RFC to face an Aber Valley Wolves side who have been two weekends without a game.


“The Wolves are looking to kick start their season after a few weeks without a game due to cancellations,” assistant coach Darren Williams said. “I’m sure everyone will be fired up for a valleys derby.”


Emanuelli adds: “My boys are looking forward to visiting our close neighbours Aber Valley this weekend. They have started the season strong and know it will be tough. With the day at Cardiff Arms Park just around the corner, all players will be looking to impress to ensure selection.”


Bridgend Blue Bulls will continue their push for a top two finish at home to Cardiff Demons.


Bulls Coach Lee Harben-Jones said: “We've got the upmost respect for how the Demons are fighting on and are determined to keep senior rugby league alive in Cardiff, but with points difference likely to play a part at the end of the season we will be pressing for another big win similar to our 18-86 win in the reverse fixture two weeks ago.”


Gwendraeth Valley Raiders welcome the Newport Titans to Parc Gwenllian this weekend. The Raiders hope to win this return fixture after they lost to the Titans in their previous encounter after travelling to Newport with a depleted squad. With very few games left these next fixtures are crucial if both sides look to secure a place in the play offs.


Raiders head coach Andrew Thorne said: “We are looking forward to the fixture. Our last encounter with the Titans was a hard fought game and they came out the winners. However this weekend we are back to full strength so we hope that we can repair the mistakes we made and take a win.”


Finally, Torfaen Tigers host Cardiff Spartans at Cwmbran RFC. The Tigers will be determined to keep hold of top spot while the visitors will be looking for their first win outside of Cardiff this season.


“We want to continue our good form and maintain our position at the top of the table,” said Tigers chairman Rob Davies. “The boys are all raring to go in what is a big home fixture for us.”
