Match Preview

Bargoed - Cardiff

Cardiff travel to Bargoed on Saturday looking to continue their unbeaten start to the season after wins over Merthyr and Newport.

Bargoed have already proved to be a tough team to beat this season having defeated Cross Keys last weekend and a narrow defeat at Ebbw Vale the week before.

In the backline there is a debut for Jack Roberts in the centre who partners Will Rees-Hole. Rhodri Cole starts at scrum half and Dan Fish, who was impressive on his return to Blue & Black last weekend as a replacement starts at full back.

The pack sees Ken Dowden starting in the front row with Dillon Lewis making the trip to Ireland with the Blues. Kris Smith partners Ben White in the engine room and Reuben Tucker starting at eight after last week’s heroics in the second half. Joe Tomlinson captains the side again from hooker.
