After the success at Brynmawr in the Ben Francis Cup last Saturday, Pontypool return to league action this Saturday when they travel to the capital city and the Memorial Ground in Ely to take on traditional rivals Glamorgan Wanderers in the Specsavers WRU National Championship.
The clubs first met way back in January 1928 at Pontypool with the home side running out 19-6 winners. The last two meetings were in the 2016-17 in the National Championship with Pooler winning both matches – 47-11 at the Memorial Ground and 23-3 in the return.
Pontypool are still unbeaten with a perfect record of 9 wins from 9 matches and a bonus point in every game and are eight points ahead of second placed Bargoed but the Rhymney Valley side have a game in hand. Glamorgan Wanderers are having a good season with 7 wins from their 9 matches and 30 league points, are in fourth place, so it should be a cracker between two in-form teams.
