Cardiff Met. v Cross Keys Team News

Cross Keys look to keep momentum going after last week’s vital victory over high flying Bedwas at Pandy Park. This week Keys head to the capital to take on Cardiff Met. at Cyncoed Campus  and will look to their own back following their heavy defeat earlier this season against the students when Cardiff Met ran out 50 points to 28 winners at Pandy Park.

The Cross Keys side for this Saturday’s game has been announced and shows some changes to the side that started in that victory over Bedwas last week, with all changes being made in the pack. In the front row Connah Vaughan comes in to replace Zac Hewlett, whilst Harvey Reader comes back in to start alongside Scott Andrews who captains the side in the second row.
