Pontypridd go into their second summer warm up match, hosting near neighbours Llantrisant at Sardis Road on Friday evening 10th August (7:15pm ko) hoping to build up some momentum into the forthcoming league campaign.
With a home win against Ystrad Rhondda already registered, Ponty will now face Division Two East side Llantrisant - the "Black Army" - and will be boosted by the return of a number of key players from holiday and injury.
Ynysybwl product Owen Jenkins is given a run on the wing having notched up two tries against Ystrad Rhondda, with another youngster Dafydd Davies from Cilfynydd given a chance to impress in the second row.
Carl Thomas makes his bow at scrum half following his return to Pontypridd, likewise flanker Ed Siggery who takes a place on the bench. Young centre Harry Davies is also amongst the replacements, lining up against his own club Llantrisant.
