Llanelli look to home advantage for first win of season

Llanelli will be hoping that home advantage this Saturday can help them secure their first win of the season in the Indigo Group Welsh Premiership Cup.

Despite near losses on a number of occasions, Llanelli are yet to notch up that elusive win that could see their season’s fortunes turnaround.
