RGC will begin the new Principality Premiership season on home soil against Neath.

The new-look Gogs take the field at Stadiwm Zip World for the first time on Saturday, September 1, and this will be followed by their first road game at Swansea the following weekend.

Mark Jones’ men host Ebbw Vale on September 15, before closing out their first month of competitive action at Pontypridd and at home to all-conquering Merthyr.

A trip to Llandovery kicks-off their October schedule, with Newport, Carmarthen Quins and Bargoed also scheduled during what promises to be a testing month for the squad.

There will be a three-series of Friday night games in November at Cardiff and at home against Bedwas and Llanelli, before a busy festive fixture list sees RGC take on Aberavon, Cross Keys, Neath, Swansea and Bridgend.

The Gogs’ final home game of the season will be against Aberavon on April 13, and they close out their third top flight campaign on their travels at Bridgend and Cross Keys.

It promises to be a very intriguing season for the North Wales regional development side, who will be without the services of influential trio Tiaan Loots, Jacob Botica and Alex Schwartz, who have all departed to try their hand at the professional ranks with Newport Gwent Dragons and Cornish Pirates.

Scrum-half Nick Butterworth is a notable addition to the squad after joining from WRU National League Division One North side Pwllheli, with a number of Academy graduates also training with the squad over the summer in the hope of making an impact within the senior set-up.
