Aberavon travel to the Mem

Aberavon visit the Memorial Stadium for an Anglo-Welsh clash in the B&I Cup on Sunday (3pm KO).

The Wizards face Bristol in the Pool Five clash - the penultimate game in the group stages of the competition.

Bristol beat Aberavon 78-0 in the rearranged B&I Cup clash in December, as Mitch Eadie crossed for his first professional hat-trick against a much-changed Welsh outfit at the Talbot Athletic Ground.

Aberavon remained third in Pool Five with one victory to their name - a 31-17 victory over Gala at Netherdale.

The Wizards have conceded a total of 208 points - the most in the group, having gone down 72-0 at the hands of Leeds Carnegie in the last Cup outing.

Following Sunday's game, Aberavon round off their B&I Cup fixtures versus Gala on Saturday, 18 January (2pm KO).
