Premiership Kicks Off

Premiership Kicks Off 6 Dec 2021

The Indigo Group Premiership kicks off on Saturday as we head to Llandovery 5.30pm

After the East/West Cup split all sides will now play each other either home or away in a league format.

Both sides last played each other in January 2020, when the Drovers won 35-29 at Eirias. Head to Head in the past 5 games has Llandovery with 4 victories and RGC with 1.  That RGC win came in October 2018 when the Gogs won 32-24 at Church Bank – Afon Bagshaw, Tom Hughes, Dion Jones and Danny Cross scored the tries.

Afon Bagshaw says the side are looking forward to the next challenge

“We are coming into the league season in a fairly good place, with results and performances improving from when we kicked off the cup games in September.

Having a couple of weeks off can either be a plus or a minus, and that will be determined by how we play on Saturday.

Starting the League campaign in December also feels different and we have a new set of challenges playing the teams from the West now. Historically games against Llandovery have been high scoring and open but results have not gone in our favour.

The League is a shorter format this season, so all teams will be focused on getting a good start and putting some points on the table as early as possible so the first 2 games could set the tone for the season ahead.  As a group we know what is needed to win games in the Premiership especially on the road – but is about making sure we hit those levels of performance to get the result and that is down to us.”
