Another two matches to report on. Last Tuesday Ebbw Vale put on a poor showing in losing 33-17 at home to Cross Keys. Then on Saturday they gave a better, but not good enough, performance in losing 31-29 at Glamorgan Wanderers.
Just one point from the two games means that we are still in the relegation picture, along with six other clubs. For Ebbw to get relegated we would have to lose our last game (at Aberavon next Saturday) and both Bridgend and Pontypool win both of their respective remaining games. An unlikely scenario, but…
