Team to play Nantgaredig

Tycroes make the short trip to Nantgaredig in Specsavers National Two West tomorrow afternoon (Kick Off 2:30pm) Weather permitting... 

Third place Tycroes will be looking to maintain their excellent recent form, with 6 wins in our last 7 fixtures, including an excellent 18-11 mid-week win under the lights against Carmarthen Athletic in the Towergate Bowl earlier this month.

Tycroes have won their last 4 encounters against Nantgaredig including a 15-20 victory on our last visit to Cae Ystrad back in December 2012.

Tycroes have won 8 out of their 13 league fixtures this season, including an 18-3 win against tomorrow’s hosts Nantgaredig at Cae Gelli in November. ‘Nant’ have won 7 out of their 15 league fixtures in comparison. Just 3 places & 4 points separate the two sides in 2 West. There is plenty at stake.

Tycroes make 6 changes to the starting XV that beat Carmarthen Athletic last time out.

Ben Thomas starts on the right wing with Elgan Griffiths moving to centre alongside Matthew Lemon who scored 2 tries in the reverse fixture earlier this season.  Captain Luc Rees continues at full back with Aled Rees Jones ruled out.

The front 5, 'En Masse' are retained and ready to go once again. 

2 changes in the back row see Sion James replace Steffan Jones at Number 8 and Will Evans for Daryl John at six. Sam Icke continues at openside flanker.
