Swansea team to face Aberavon

By Dave Dow | 09/02/2018

  • Aberavon v Swansea T.A.G. Sat 10th Feb. KO: 1:30pm
  • Swansea team announced
  • Four changes to starting XV

Swansea will face Aberavon tomorrow at the Talbot Athletic Ground with a scrum little changed from that which performed so well against Bargoed at St Helen's.

The only change will be that Jon Fox replaces Steff Jones at No8. Steff had to leave the field last week shortly after scoring Swansea's opening try from the back of a dominant forward shove.

Gareth Walters retains the outside-half berth but will be partnered by Matt Aubrey with last week's MOTM Josh Guy one of tomorrow's replacements. Likewise Gareth Rees replaces Dan Howells on the wing with Howells joining the bench. The squad rotation allows game time for the backs behind an ever improving Swansea scrum, who will have to maintain the form of last week to provide them with a good platform.

Kick-off is at 13:30 to allow supporters plenty time to enjoy the afternoon's Six Nations rugby.

Supporters are reminded that St Helen's will be open for all the Six Nations encounters following Swansea's away fixture down the road at Aberavon. We will be providing FREE Cawl, bread and cheese at half-time for the England v Wales match, which will be shown on widescreen. Support The Whites and join us to support Wales afterwards.
