Replacements will be confirmed on Saturday before kickoff.
On making his 200th appearance for the Steelmen, Cam commented,
“It is a privilege to play rugby for Ebbw Vale and a massive honour to get to 200 games. Never did I think I would get to 200 when I first came to the club, but it’s been a hell of a ride and without the support of my family and friends this wouldn’t have been possible. 200 not out!”
Get along to the Ciner Glass Community Stadium on Saturday at 2.30pm to celebrate Cam’s 200th game and cheer on the boys against the Welsh All Blacks.
