The draw has been made for the semi finals of the National Cup.
After Wednesday’s convincing win over Bargoed, Ebbw now face Merthyr in the tie to be played on April 7th at Cross Keys RFC. The game will luck off at 5:15pm and be shown live on S4C. The league match with Cross Keys, originally set for that date, will be rearranged.
In the other match, Newport will take on Llandovery.
The National Cup match between Ebbw Vale RFC and Bargoed RFC on Wednesday 21st March will see both teams wearing mis-matched socks to support World Down Syndrome Day.
March 21st has been chosen to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day, to recognise that a person with Down Syndrome has three copies of the 21st chromosome instead of two.
To help raise awareness, people are encouraged to wear mismatched socks, brightly coloured socks, long socks, just one sock or be really creative and wear three socks.
A spokesperson for Ebbw Vale RFC said, “ EVRFC are proud to support World Down Syndrome Day on Wednesday 21st March. With support from the WRU we’ll be wearing mis-matched socks for the important cup game away at Bargoed.”
Bargoed RFC are also delighted to be involved with a such a worthwhile cause. As well as joining Ebbw Vale RFC in wearing mis-matched socks they have offered a charity bucket collection at the match.
All supporters are encouraged to wear mis-matched socks to the game to support WDSD18 and help raise funds for the worthwhile cause. Both clubs would like to thank the WRU for supporting this event.
