It’s set to be a busy evening at the Liberty Stadium next Friday with 13 community rugby clubs confirmed, bringing over 1,000 supporters along to watch the first Welsh PRO12 derby of the season.
On what is building to be a huge occasion in Round 6 of the Guinness PRO12, Cardiff Blues, unbeaten and second in the table going into this weekend’s action, visit the Liberty Stadium looking for a first league win at the venue since 2005, and a first PRO12 success over the Ospreys since New Year’s Eve 2010, a run of 11 games without a win.
There is a full programme of activity for participating clubs on the night, with Mumbles providing the pre-match guard of honour as the teams run out with Dulais Valley Cubs acting as flag bearers pre-match.
Half-time tag rugby sees Cwmgors, Dulais Valley, Dunvant, Llanharan, Loughor and Taibach go head to head, with Dulais Valley then providing the second half guard of honour supported by flag bearers from Llanharan and Pencoed.
That’s not all though as also in attendance for the game we have parties from Bryncoch, Gowerton, Laugharne, Pontardawe and Tonyrefail rugby clubs and Bae Baglan school.
With the biggest crowd of the season in store set to turn out for an action packed contest between two big rivals it’s going to be a night to remember.
