College rugby preview

The Ospreylian college teams are back in action tomorrow following the half-term break.


Neath Port Talbot College and Bridgend College will clash in what should be an exciting Ospreylian derby. Neath come into this fixture on the back of a 76-10 thrashing of Pembroke College and will try to enforce this dominance on rivals, Bridgend.

Bridgend are looking to bounce back from a loss against Llandovery but will have to be on top form to bring down an in-form Neath Port Talbot team.

Captain, Tom Bluck said: “We have to be more clinical against Neath because we know they are capable of scoring, so when we create the chances it's important we take them”

After bagging their first win of the season, Gower College Swansea will be looking for back to back victories as they welcome a strong Coleg Gwent team to St Helens.  Gower scored three tries as they swept aside Coleg Morgannwg a fortnight ago and will hope to emulate their performance on Wednesday.
