THERE will be a rarity for Wrexham tomorrow... Welsh opposition!

Preparing for the forthcoming Division Two (North) season, Wrexham have been looking over the border for friendly opponents over recent weeks.

Lloyd Roberts (3), Jason Andrews, Jacob Hughes and James Price (2) were the try scorers as Wrexham triumphed 43-15 in their friendly at Firwood Waterloo last Saturday, following on from a 37-12 success at Eccles.

However, it's a return to competitive action tomorrow as Wrexham host Teirw Nant Conwy in Group B of the North Wales Bowl.

There are three pools in the Bowl, with Colwyn Bay also in Group B.

The winner of each of the three groups will go through to the semi-finals, as well as the best group runner-up.

Things are moving at a pace, with the new Division Two (North) season scheduled to start on Saturday, November 13.

"This is important," said Wrexham manager Nick Partington.

"We want to beat Nant and we want to win both these games."

As for the target for the season, Partington added: "For the firsts, it's to win both cups and win the league - simple as that.

"We wanted to be promoted this year and consolidate our position in Division One and aim for the North Wales championship in two years.

"But we won't be able to do that."

No promotion or relegation in the North Wales leagues this season, meaning the earliest that Wrexham could make the step-up to Division One would be 2023.

In the Welsh Plate tomorrow, COBRA host Dolgellau, while there's a big Vale of Clwyd derby in the Welsh Shield as Ruthin seconds go to Denbigh seconds.

Mold thirds are in friendly action tomorrow as they play host to Old Anselmians thirds.

Bala welcome Newtown in the North East Wales Youth League.
