Pool head to men of steel

Created on 24/01/2020 @ 11:26

It’s another away trip for the Maesydre team as they head to Shotton Steel looking for a win which will allow them to leapfrog their opponents in the league table, writes Gary Williams from Oval Zone Rugby.

Sitting level on 25 points in sixth and seventh in Division Two North, Pool’s coach, Dave Roberts, knows that this is a game that they need to win if his side are going to finish in the top five.

Roberts stated: “We won’t take any notice of the fact that Shotton lost last week at lowly Abergele, we know from experience that they’re a tough side to play on their own patch.

“We’ll have to be at full strength and, unlike last week, switched on from the first whistle to the last. However, I have great faith in my team and we’re all looking forward to the challenge.”

Elsewhere in the division, Newtown and Llanidloes might not be looking forward to this weekend’s challenge quite as much. Newtown host current leaders Rhyl who are in a rich vein of form, and Llanidloes have unbeaten promotion favourites Wrexham as their visitors to Cae Hafren.

Based on current results, both Mid Wales sides will need to be at the top of their game to cause upsets but both are capable of fine performances when at full strength.

In Division One North, COBRA face the daunting task of travelling to Llandudno and hoping to become the first team to claim the scalp of the unbeaten runaway league leaders.
