Big matches in North and South Wales this weekend
There are two big games in Betfred League 1 this Saturday and another two in the Welsh Premier League as the season heats up for our semi-professional and domestic sides.
For West Wales Raiders and Hemel Stags at Stebonheath Park in Llanelli (kick-off 3pm), something has to give. Both sides have lost every game this season and both have conceded high amounts of points.
The Raiders have recruited well in recent weeks with three joining from Gloucestershire All Golds in Phil Cowburn, Brad Killingsbury and Scottish international Joe McLean. Welsh international Connor Farrer should be back to make his 100th professional appearance.
North Wales Crusaders have a tough trip to League 1 leaders Bradford Bulls (kick-off 3pm) with the game being shown live on the Bradford Bulls Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/officialbulls/.
In the Welsh Premier League, Rhondda Outlaws will be looking to build on their big win over Cardiff Blue Dragons last week when they host Valley Cougars at Sardis Road (kick-off 2.30pm), whilst Cardiff visit Cwmbran to face second place Torfaen Tigers (kick-off 2pm).
Meanwhile at Deeside Leisure Centre on Sunday, the North Wales Origin side have their first outing of the season when they host Golborne Parkside RLFC. Kick-off is 2.30pm.
There is one game in the under 15 league on Sunday - Penlan Wild Stallions v Aber Valley Wolves.
