Can Pool march on?

Created on 27/08/2021 @ 09:51


It’s another mouth-watering clash at Maesydre as table-toppers Welshpool host a Machynlleth side who will be full of confidence after their 14-15 win at Aberystwyth Athletic last 

weekend, writes Gary Williams

Through injuries and unavailability, Pool will have to make a number of changes to the side that finished their last game, a convincing win against rivals Newtown.

Club coach, Dai Roberts, reported that he was confident that the boys coming in for their first competitive match of the season will be up for the challenge that Machynlleth will inevitably bring.

“In all my time at the club we have never had an easy game against Machynlleth and I’m sure Saturday will be no different,” he said. “We’re looking forward to locking horns with them again and hoping that we can continue where we left off in our last game.” 

Unfortunately, the other game in this pool has been cancelled – Llanidloes v Newtown. 

In the Plate competition, COBRA host Dogellau. following on from a dour 8-3 win against Bro Ffestiniog, and they’ll be hoping for a more expansive game this weekend against a Dolgellau side who play their second game of the competition, having suffered a last-minute penalty defeat by 12-11 at Bro Ffestiniog in their opening fixture. 

The North Wales 2nd XV sees Newtown 2nds, fresh from their fine win against Bala 2nds, face a Bro Gwernant side who suffered a heavy defeat last weekend at the hands of COBRA 2nds.

A tough one to call will be Bala 2nds v COBRA 2nds with the hosts looking formidable on their home pitch.
