After Pontypool’s valiant WRU National Cup defeat at the hands of impressive Merthyr at The Wern Sports Park on Tuesday, they now have to re-focus on WRU National Championship matters on Saturday when they travel to Cyncoed to take on Cardiff Metropolitan University, kick-off 2.30pm.

It is a huge game for the club as victory against the students will mean that Pontypool will retain the Championship crown they won so convincingly last season. This will be a tough match as it was at Cyncoed this time last year when Pontypool lost their 100% league record last season as the home side ran out worthy winners 30-22.

Earlier this season Pontypool eased passed Cardiff Met at Pontypool Park with a 74-14 victory at the end of October, scoring a dozen tries in the process.

Pontypool currently have a 22-point lead at the top of the table with 16 wins from 16 matches and 78 league points out of a possible 80, while Cardiff Met are in 7th place having won 7 and drawn 1 of their 17 matches played and have 36 league points.
