Pontypool take to the road on Saturday with a trip to The Gnoll to take on traditional rivals Neath in the Specsavers WRU National Championship.

Pontypool , having dropped only one point out of a maximum of 70 with 14 straight wins this season, are currently 11 points ahead of second-placed Bargoed who have a game in hand over the current Championship Champions. Neath are in 5th position with 7 wins from 13 matches played and have 36 league points.

Pooler will be after a very rare double over the Welsh All Blacks having recorded their biggest victory in the fixture, 59-5, at Pontypool Park back in September.

Pontypool have lost their last 13 matches at The Gnoll and have to go back to 21 December 1991 for their last win there, 13-10, in what was then the Heineken Premier Division.
