The hugely popular Ross Jones has answered the call to arms and having decided to come out of retirement, Ross was about to sign at Pontypool but did an about turn back up the valley to Eugene Cross Park following a short discussion with Jason and Chairman Jon Jones. 

Ross has always added a great amount of value off the pitch, leading by example in training and always being available to young front row forwards as a mentor. He is guaranteed a big welcome back from the Ebbw Addicts

23 year old Back row forward Alex Howe has arrived from Abergavenny via a vert short stay at Cross Keys RFC and brings with him a very powerful carrying and tackling game

The following players have left the club

Outside Half Lewis K Williams has taken a step back from rugby to try and resolve a recurring back issue which has affected his ability to work. Lewis endeared himself to the Ebbw Addicts with a superb display at Merthyr in the first game of the season which was capped with a nerveless winning penalty in injury time

Back Row forward Scott Parsons has taken on a new job as the Pelops his career as an engineer which has meant that he is unable to provide the level of commitment that is required to play in the Welsh Premiership

The club would like to thank both Lewis and Scott for their services to the club and hope to see them supporting the Steelmen in the future
