Pool out to continue run

In Division Two North, Welshpool, buoyant after some great recent derby wins against Llanidloes and Newtown, travel to Bangor for what is always a tricky fixture, writes Gary Williams of Oval Zone Rugby.

Pool defeated Bangor at home earlier in a WRU Cup game (pictured) but know that Bangor, struggling near the foot of the table, will target this as a game in which they will fancy picking up some points.

Welshpool, on the other hand, unfortunately travelling without a number of regulars, will still be looking to continue their rise up the table and will feel that they have enough firepower to enjoy their long trip North and come home with the spoils.

Newtown, in ninth position in the league, host fifth placed Colwyn Bay in what will be a real test. Newtown, despite an erratic season to date, have shown against some of the big hitters in the division that, on their day, they are more than capable of giving anyone a game.

Llanidloes, currently at the foot of the table, face another stiff test as they entertain Shotton Steel. The Steelmen, who have been blowing hot and cold this season, are capable of turning most sides over in this division. Unfortunately, due to their small squad and work commitments, they struggle on their travels and Llani will be hoping to take advantage and get themselves off the bottom of the table.

In Division One North, COBRA, currently holding the rest up in the table, host a Pwllheli side who haven't been playing to their very high standards of recent seasons, so the Meifod boys will fancy their chances of sneaking what would still be a shock result. With high-flying Ruthin next up at Meifod, COBRA really need to get points of some sort from these next two games as they head in to Christmas.
