Swansea team v Pontypool

The Swansea team to face Pontypool in the Specsavers sponsored WRU National Cup has been announced. The Whites have made one or two changes to the team that started the season so well against Llanelli last week.

In the pack, Tom Northey comes in at loose-head, Tom Sloane moving to the bench. Harry Matthews comes into the back row as does Matthew Moore and Duane Eager moves to No8, replacing Jon Fox as captain for this match.

Behind the scrum the lineup remains that of last weekend except that Ryan Griffiths comes in for Brandon Wood on the wing.

Kick off is at 2:30pm.
