Bedwas v Llanelli
This should be a straight-forward victory for the visitors as Bedwas haven’t won in the league since mid-January. Home advantage will give them some help but the Scarlets have the incentive of putting the pressure firmly on the five teams at the top.
Verdict – Llanelli by ten points
Bridgend v Llandovery
Llandovery miss a great chance last time out when they lost at home to Cross Keys and after beating the Ravens in the reverse fixture earlier in the season they’ll want to bounce back straight away. Bridgend will want to arrest a three-match losing streak too.
Verdict – Llandovery by seven points
Cardiff v Aberavon
Both teams go into the game on the back of defeats, the one for Aberavon costing them first place in the table. Both clubs blow hot and cold at home and away respectively but Cardiff seem to raise their game against the better sides.
Verdict – Cardiff by six points
Carmarthen Quins v Tonmawr
Quins are on a five-game winning streak and have really had to battle hard for some of those. They will be disappointed if they don’t secure a bonus point against the bottom club but should do with ease.
Verdict – Quins by 20 points
Cross Keys v Swansea
Despite being seventh in the standings, Keys are by no means out of the running for the title and are looking for a third win in a row at home to Swansea. By the final whistle, the Whites could leap above rivals Cardiff and that will be incentive enough for them to win at Pandy Park.
Verdict – Cross Keys by nine points
Newport v Pontypridd
Newport recovered from a thumping at Aberavon to edge past Neath last weekend which makes this game not as easy to predict as some might think. Ponty’s form is a little up and down and they haven’t been able to find that consistency.
Verdict – Pontypridd by seven points
Pontypool v Neath
Neath lead the Premiership but they haven’t been as dominant as you’d expect from a team in their position. Pontypool beat Cardiff last Saturday to give them some confidence after a poor season and they’ll make it tough for the visitors.
Verdict – Neath by seven points
