Pontypool welcome Tata Steel to Pontypool Park on Saturday in the SWALEC Championship. This will be Pontypool’s first home game for five weeks, since they defeated Bridgend Athletic 31-7 on 24 October.
Pooler are in a rich vein of form at the moment with their unbeaten run stretching to 9 games, including seven consecutive victories which has taken them to third place in the league table. The Pontypool players showed some character last weekend when they fought back from 15-0 after 60 minutes to eventually overcome Glynneath 19-15 in atrocious conditions at Abernant Park.
11th placed Tata Steel secured a 38-15 home victory over Cardiff Met last time out. Last season, matches between our two clubs ended in victory to the home side – Pooler ran out narrow 36-34 victors at Pontypool Park in October while Tata Steel avenged that reverse with a 41-17 win at Margam in March.
