Welsh All Blacks Fear Howling Highlands

Welsh All Blacks Fear Howling Highlands

Neath coach Lyn Jones is wary of the Scottish weather and will pick his team accordingly when he arrives in Glasgow on Friday.
But, Wales wing Shane Williams will not play, he picked up a hamstring injury against Pontypridd last weekend and is currently undergoing intensive physiotherapy.
“We delay finalising our team until we can get a look at the weather conditions in Glasgow on Thursday evening/ Friday morning,” said Jones.
“So far this season we have been to the top and bottom of our game, but on Friday we are up against one of the best teams in the league, particularly at home.
“It will be difficult to get a result, but not impossible. Whatever happens there is still a lot of league rugby to play after this match, with six more games to go”
“Assistant Coach, Rowland Phillips added, “Glasgow have a virtually unbeaten home record and probably one of the worst away records in the league. So we can take nothing from their match against Newport last weekend.
“Over the last few years we have found it tough to get anything from our travels to Scotland or France, however, this season has been successful with wins in Edinburgh and Bourgoin.
” We are also beating Welsh sides away, and that is the reason why we are currently in the top four of the league. Our win in the early part of the season at Edinburgh broke the spell, and we now have to win in
Glasgow in order to finish the job.”
The Neath team to play Glasgow at Hughenden on Friday 15th March, kick off at 7.30pm will be selected from the following squad:
Gareth Morris, Kevin James, James Storey, Allan Bateman, Dave Tiueti, Lee Jarvis, Andy Moore, Nathan Bonner-Evans, Brett Sinkinson, Richard Francis, Gareth Llewellyn (c), Steve Martin, Andrew Millward, Barry Williams, Duncan Jones, Andrew Howell, Rowland Phillips, Dean Dewdney, Patrick Horgan, Steve Jones, Paul James, Dylan Pugh, Lyndon Bateman
