5th placed Dunvant travel to play 6th placed Bridgend Athletic this Saturday for our first visit to Newbridge Fields in 11 years.

If History is anything to go by, this will be a tough one for Dunvant. In three league visits to Bridgend Fields in 2005/6/7, Athletic won them all. Equally though at Broadacre ,Dunvant won them all. That leaves Dunvant still looking for a first win for our away fixture between the 2 sides.
So far this season, Athletic have won a tight victory 21-20 at home to Ammanford followed by a 21-19 defeat at Kenfig Hill, scoring 3 tries in those 2 games for 5 points and 6th place. Last week they had a morale boosting 36-7 Plate win at 2nd Division Pyle. Dunvant had a gripping 28-27 loss away at Glynneath but a comfortable34-22 home win over Waunarlwydd, scoring a total of 8 tries for 6 points and 5th place. Last weekend Dunvant had a home Plate win 19-11 over Nantyffyllon. Athletic will certainly be looking to maintain their home form but it does look as if it will be a tight contest with both sides seeking the win and defending vigorously to keep the opposition out.
Elsewhere, our 2nds are away at Kenfig Hill and our Youth team are away at Gorseinon in the 1st round of the WRU Youth Bowl Competition.
Don’t forget you red and green supporters- respect the Referee, respect the players, respect our opponents and enjoy the game, whatever the result. Be Loud-Be Proud.
