In the wake of further WRU Plate forays by Newcastle Emlyn and Crymych both teams return to the bread and butter of League 1 West on Saturday and Cardigan go in search of points in League 3 West A.

Emlyn host Gowerton at Dol Wyber with the Red and Whites on course for a fifth successive win while ten miles away the Preselimen take on old adversaries Whitland.

As it stands the Teifisiders are level on points with Felinfoel at the head of affairs and the pair go head to head at St George Field in Llanelli on November 9.

To date Alex Williams and Co have defeated Aberystwyth and Penclawdd down by the River Teifi and won on the road at Gorseinon and Whitland, amassing 93 points and conceding 69.

Currently ninth in the table with seven points, Gowerton have won once in four outings and in their latest game went down to a 23-0 away defeat against Felinfoel.

There were encouraging signs during the clash with Foel but it will be a major surprise if the visitors turn over Emlyn.

Inconsistency has marked Crymych’s early season form but there are those who feel that on their day the north Pembrokeshire villagers can hold their own with the best in the division.

Skipper Rhys Davies and colleagues are up for the visit of the Borderers who are currently joint fifth with their rivals on ten points.

Crymych started the campaign in style with an impressive win over visitors Llangennech but lost twice in succession before returning to form with a bang in springing a 30-10 win at home against Gorseinon.

Whitland got the season off to a flying start with two wins but were then swept aside by Emlyn and Llangennech and could be required to raise their game if they are to get anything at Parc Lloyd Thomas.

Cardigan occupy a mid-table slot in League 3 West A with one win from three starts while Llanybydder are near the bottom having lost all three games.

The Cardis could feel that the game at Parc Teifi is one they can win and there will be quiet confidence among followers of their favourites securing victory for the second time this term.
