THERE are so many positives Wrexham can take from their slender one-point loss to Porth Harlequins in the Welsh Division One Cup.

The Division One East Central prevailed 24-23 in a real thriller and Wrexham will be aiming to take positives from this encounter into tomorrow’s testing Division One North trip to Llandudno.

Skipper Jack Harrison said: “For us it’s a case of building on what was a really pleasing performance last weekend.

“Porth Harlequins came up with a host of players plying their trades in the Championship and Premiership last season and we matched them throughout.

“We were gutted not to get over the line but we learnt an awful lot from it.

“We know what Llandudno are about, they went unbeaten for two years not so long ago and have started the season strongly so we’re well aware about what sort of challenge we’ve got Saturday.

“For us it’s about being competitive and seeing where that takes us, if we can back up certain things from last weekend and tighten up a few other aspects then it will put us in good stead.”

Mold, who lost out at Dowlais in the cup last time out, will be hoping to make home comforts count as they tackle Caernarfon.

Leaders Nant Conwy's trip to old foes Bala tonight has been postponed, while Ruthin entertain Pwllheli and Llangefni have home advantage versus Bethesda tomorrow.

Shotton Steel have made a promising start to their Division Two North campaign and they’ll be aiming to continue this at Colwyn Bay.

Leaders Denbigh have a tough encounter at home to Nant Conwy Seconds.

Other fixtures: Bangor v Newtown; Rhyl & District v Abergele; Welshpool v Bro Ffestiniog.

There’s a trip to Denbigh Seconds as Llangollen-based Bro Gwernant return to Division Three North East action.

Bro lost out narrowly 15-5 at Rhigos in the Division Five Cup in their most recent encounter and team manager Huw Evans said: “We gave it a good shot today. We had our chances but couldn’t take them.

“Their number 10 kicked everything through the posts and we couldn’t apply consistent pressure to enable us to add to the scoreboard.

“What was pleasing with the performance, we were in the game to the very end and it’s another game without conceding a try which shows how well our defensive side is doing.

“We just need to cut out the cheap penalties conceded. We now look forward to getting back to league action with an away trip to Denbigh Seconds on Saturday.”

There’s a big derby as Wrexham Seconds host Rhosllanerchrugog, while Flint face a trip to COBRA Seconds and Mold Seconds are at Llanidloes.

The other match sees Machynlleth at home to Ruthin Seconds.

RGC will be aiming to make it back-to-back Welsh Premiership wins for the first time this season when they head to Neath tomorrow.

Ceri Jones’ charges beat Aberavon 33-28 last weekend and the match saw the return to action of Huw Worthington, who has signed a short-term deal.

Tonight: Bridgend v Llandovery. Tomorrow: Aberavon v Carmarthen Q; Merthyr v Swansea.
