Club Statement - Points deduction

Wednesday 17th January 2024

Pontypool RFC can confirm the club has been deducted 2 Indigo Premiership points for the 2023/24 season due to us not being able to safely field a team for our fixture, originally scheduled for 2nd December, against RGC.

We submitted an appeal to the WRU Competition Committee confirming reasons why all our trained loose-head props were unavailable and also outlining our attempts to arrange 2 suitably trained players on permit for the 2-day trip to North Wales, which were ultimately unsuccessful.

Our appeal also included additional information citing the timeline, rationale and communication between both clubs.

Our focus now turns to the remainder of the season and we look forward to welcoming Merthyr RFC to Pontypool Park this Saturday.
