The next two games in the Championship – both away from home – could have a huge bearing on the future of Newcastle Emlyn who are dangerously close to the relegation zone.

On Saturday the Red and Whites visit bottom of the pile Glynneath who are nine points from safety but can be expected to put up a show on their own patch.

Last Saturday the Tivysiders went down 14-0 at home against fourth in the table Trebanos while their opponents lost 55-24 away against Cardiff Metropolitan University.

Victory for fifth from bottom Emlyn, who have won five of their 14 games, would ease the pressure before the following weekend when Alex

Williams and Co are on their travels again when visiting fellow strugglers Rhydyfelin.

Crymych are flying high in the WRU National Plate having reached the quarter-final but it is an entirely different matter in regard to League 1

West with the Preselimen at this stage of the campaign appearing hot favourites to be relegated.

Third from bottom Llanelli Wanderers visit Parc Lloyd Thomas for a vital relegation clash with Crymych currently rock bottom and nine points from safety.

Fresh from a creditable 20-8 win over Haverfordwest at home Cardigan will hope to continue the good work with victory at Laugharne in League 3 West A.

When these sides met at King George V Playing Field earlier in the season the Carmarthenshire visitors emerged 41-10 winners and with home

advantage are sure to fancy their chance of completing the double.
