Ponty name teem to meet Llanelli :: 19 Mar 22:13
Dicomidis resumes partnership with Craig Locke
Premiership leaders Pontypridd resume their league campaign with an away trip to Llanelli on Sunday 22nd March, the match at Parc y Scarlets kicking off at 2:30pm.
Having taken time out on the previous weekend, Ponty’s last engagement was a home tie against Ebbw Vale on 7th March, with a 27pts to 0 win consolidating their status as league leaders. Llanelli trail behind in eighth position and a full twenty-six points adrift of Pontypridd.
In the reverse fixture at Sardis Road on 21st November, Pontypridd secured victory by 34pts to 10. Whilst current form favours title chasers Ponty, they must look back in anger at a league defeat away to Llanelli by 29pts to 5 towards the end of last season.
Recent injury victims amongst the Ponty squad are outside half Lewis K Williams (knee), winger Chris Clayton (thigh) and no8 Dan Godfrey (back). Senior Blue Chris Dicomidis is given another outing at club level, resuming his old second row partnership with Craig Locke, whilst young flanker Dafi Davies is given another opportunity to impress at blind-side.
