There is a break in action for the 1st XV but there is still plenty of action for other teams in the Club this weekend.
The 1st XV have received a bye in the first round of the WRU National Plate so are without a fixture this weekend but will be keen to see who they meet in the last sixteen of the tournament when it is drawn next Tuesday.
The 2nd XV are hoping to return to action this weekend but at the moment are looking for a pool fixture with Mal O’Sullivan sure to work tirelessly again to get something played. There is a break in the Rhondda & East Glamorgan DRU league this weekend as it is the designated Cup weekend.
The Youth XV are again in Blues league action and welcome Aberdare to Mount Pleasant Park (2.30pm).
The young Green and Golds put on a good performance at the Wern against Merthyr last Saturday but only managed to take home a losing bonus point as they were eventually pipped 35-32 by the Ironmen. That performance will give Beddau plenty of confidence as they head into the second part of the season.
Aberdare have had a very good season with six wins from their opening seven league games. Those victories came against Mountain Ash (15-5 & 24-20), Rumney (22-14), Merthyr (10-0), Cardiff Met (19-15) and at home to Beddau on October 1st where the score line was 27-7 to the Snakes. The visitors currently occupy third spot with their solitary defeat being away to league leaders Rumney on the opening day of the season by 20-5.
Match referee is Mr Martin Beazer.
MINI & JUNIOR RUGBY
Once again the fields of Beddau will be full on Sunday morning with Children of our Community and surrounding areas enjoying playing games against different Clubs. They continue to impress and deserve our support, so please make every effort to get out and support our super kids.
Our table topping darts team are again in action this Friday as they make the trip over to Ogmore B (8.15pm).
The hosts are in fifth place in the Pontyclun & District Winter league with eight wins from the thirteen games that they have played. They gave Beddau a real run for their money in the first clash of the season between the teams at the Clubhouse back in October where Beddau eventually won through by 4-3 (11-9 legs). There was some good darts on show by both teams that night and Beddau hit no fewer than five 180’s in the match with Cavan Phillips hitting the maximum twice. Ian “Bompa” Phillips, John Coburn and Duane Davies also hit three top darts.
Beddau are currently two points clear at the top of the table and will be hoping to keep their winning run going and not allow Ogmore A in at the top.
Cwm Welfare’s Welsh league fixtures continue to come thick and fast and this weekend they face a real tough test away at fourth placed Ely Rangers.
The Cardiff Club have won eight and drawn five of their first sixteen games and are just five points off the leaders Sully Sports.
Cwm inflicted one of the Rangers five defeats on them this season with a good 3-1 win over them at the end of September at Mount Pleasant Park. What they would give for a similar result as they aim to get moving up the table and out of the danger zone.
Kick-off is 2pm.
There is FA Cup football and WRU National Cup action to be watched this weekend and you can watch it live in HD on the many large screens and big TV’s around the Clubhouse.
