Cross Keys host the Welsh All Blacks of Neath at Pandy Park on Saturday aiming to make it 4 wins out of 4 against teams from Ospreylia this season.
Neath have won two and lost two of their four games played so far this season. On the opening day they sent Swansea packing 23-9 at the Gnoll. Then suffered two successive defeats at home to top of the league side, Llandovery (17-37) then at Parc y Scarlets last Wednesday evening they were soundly beaten 37-5 by an impressive Llanelli side. However Neath did get their second win of the season on Wednesday evening at the Gnoll, edging out visitors Carmarthen Quins by 15 points to 12.
In the Quins game Neath scored tries by centres, Gareth McCarthy and Ryan Evans whilst former Keys number 10 Dai Langdon added a conversion and penalty. Quins points were solely from the boot of Scarlets' outside half Dan Newton, who kicked 4 penalties.
The Keys are showing good form going into this match putting the opening day defeat to Pontypridd firmly behind them. Keys know that they will have to be in top form if they are to defeat Neath although they are more than capable of defeating the visitors should they play to their full potential. Keys' Anthony Lott, Gerwyn Price, Adam Powell and Luke Ford could all face their former side whilst Neath may well include former Keys fly half Dai Langdon.
Team news will appear later.
