2016/2017 Principality Premiership
Llanelli 29 v 41 Pontypridd
17 September 2016 - Parc y Scarlets, Llanelli

Match Preview

Pontypridd v Llanelli in Principality Premiership

This Saturday we welcome last seasons’ Principality PremiershipRunners-Up Pontypridd RFC to Parc Y Scarlets

After their excellent away win at Bedwas in their opening game, Ponty’s home game last week against strong rivals Ebbw Vale had to be postponed due to unavailability of their home ground. Hopefully, we get to play on their new 3D pitch in a reverse fixture at Sardis in the second part of the season.


In recent seasons the perfect playing surface at Parc Y Scarlets has been a happy hunting ground for Ponty, with our 31-10 win in April 2014 being our last home victory against them.


For ourselves, a good overall performance in the opener against Principality Champions Ebbw Vale was followed by a drubbing at Carmarthen Quins last Saturday. Our coaches will be working hard to get our game back on track and demanding consistency in personal and team performance.


To all spectators, please note the introduction of new RFC ground entrance and clubhouse facility at the Quinnell Lounge. All supporters will now gain entry to the 'Parc' via the main reception area and then be directed to the Quinnell lounge. All other turnstiles and the ticket office will be closed. It will be a cash paying facility only. For more info go to ‘Tickets” on our website www.llanellirfc.co.uk 


We had very positive feedback for our first pre and post match atmosphere at the Quinnell Lounge and it was nice to see  Management, Players & Supporters of both teams mingling and exchanging different views of the game over a beer or two.


Todays Referee is Simon Rees and we extend a warm welcome him and his officials.

Once again thank you the supporters and hope you will enjoy another full-on Principality Premiership encounter at Parc Y Scarlets.
