Pontypool RFC v Carmarthen Quins RFC at Pontypool Park Free Entry

Pontypool RFC v Carmarthen Quins RFC at Pontypool Park Free Entry

Pontypool RFC v Carmarthen Quins RFC at Pontypool Park Free Entrypontypool rfc v carmarthen quins rfc

After Pontypool RFC’s Cup exploits last Season, the promise made before every Draw after the first round Win over Llanelli from CEO Ben Jeffreys was that if Pontypool got a home draw then it would be Free Entry for all. Unfortunately Pontypool RFC received 3 away draws in the great cup run of 2016/17 season eventually going out after a hard fort game at Cross Keys RFC. This was only after having beaten both Llanelli and Cardiff on their home turf.

So just over a Week ago, on Saturday 6th January the WRU National Cup 2017/18 started again with a home draw against Tata Steel RFC. Pontypool RFC won the game playing some glorious rugby scoring 8 tries in tough conditions against a TataSteel side that would not give up (Read the Match Report Here). After the draw last week Pontypool RFC now welcome Carmarthen Quins RFC to Pontypool Park for the 2nd Round of the WRU National Cup. With news today that the game will also be televised Live on S4C.

The support last season for the Cup run was special but let’s make this seasons cup run even more impressive and show how many supporters we can get at the Park for this massive Cup game. So we can get behind the Team and show them the support that they richly deserve. With the game against local rivals Newbridge over the festive season being one of the highest in recent seasons lets seen the people of Pontypool and surrounding towns come out and support local club rugby (this is of course if you’re not at your local clubs game).

So lets see the #PoolerArmy Grow and stay with the side for the rest of the cup run and league games going forward and show the Players, staff, volunteers and Owners that we are proud to support them and what they are trying to achieve.

Other 2nd Round Fixtures are

Bargoed RFC v Rhydyfelin RFC
Beddau RFC v Bedwas
Bridgend v Ebbw Vale
Cardiff Rugby v Merthyr
Cross Keys v Bedlinog RFC
Llandovery v Llanelli
Newport v Aberavon

Who Are Sepsis Soldiers?

Sepsis Soldiers are a team of Health Workers that are based at the Accident & Emergency Department of the Royal Gwent Hospital in Newport, part of the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board.

They are a team of nurses, doctors and paramedics and more who are taking part in Cardiff’s Survival of the Fittest this year in Cardiff Bay on 24th September to raise money and awareness for The UK Sepsis Trust. You can help them by sponsoring them to complete the course and promote awareness of one of the UK’s biggest killers. Something that is very close to all their hearts and is something they all deal with on a day to day basis.

At EventsnWales we are extremely grateful for the work that the UK Sepsis Trust does including all involved right down to the Health Care Workers that are the first point of contact and the first chance to potentially diagnose and treat Sepsis, as a member of our family survived having sepsis due to the quick work of the professionals including some of the members of Sepsis Soldiers.

The contenders are: A Vaghella, K Morley, L Silcox (owen), H Stephenson, J Randall Evans, L Skryme, R Taylor, L Moore, V Suffield, V Richards, S Harry, B & P Farrell, Fabio Caroprese, A Crookes, G Darminin, K Atwick, R Suansing, D Bielski.

You can find out more about the UK Sepsis Trust by liking the Facebook page and also follow along on Twitter but lets help spread the word of the Sepsis Soldiers and help them raise as much money and Awareness as possible.
