RGC Preview

South vs North

Ebbw will take on northern outfit RGC when the floodlit games return to the CiNER Glass Stadium on Friday (7.15pm KO). Both sides have taken a similar approach to the Indigo Group Premiership Cup, developing lots of young and exciting talent to help their squads along for the forthcoming shortened season.

The sides last clashed in October, RGC taking the spoils 17-13 in front of over 1100 supporters in Colwyn Bay. Ebbw lost their captain Joe Franchi to a bicep tear that evening, and he remains out to this day, but with lots of fresh talent coming through the ranks a lot of pride remains at stake with both sides dwelling at the foot of the table. 

Ebbw hold up the table on 10 points whilst RGC rose to 17 following a good win at home to Newport last weekend. The Steelmen will be looking to put last Friday’s disappointing result behind them and hope we see similar progress to that of the first hour of the Cardiff match.

In what’ll be the penultimate game of this cup, let’s #PackTheBank and get behind the boys for the final home game until the Premiership returns in December.

Head Coach Greg Woods remains positive that Ebbw can still take something from this season and insists Ebbw will target both their remaining games.

“We’ll target every game, it [Cardiff] was a lot better performance than at Sardis Road, we’ve still got plenty to work on, but parts of last Friday we can build on.”
