IT’S Mold’s turn to front-up against the top side in North Wales.

Seven days after stretching their winning record to a perfect 10 from 10 with victory over Wrexham, Division One North leaders Nant Conwy head to Mold tomorrow.

This will be the first game for Mold without Joe Jones at the helm.

Head of performance Oli Heald said: “Last week we said goodbye to head coach Joe Jones, who has joined Llanelli Scarlets, so he can’t carry on at Mold.

“Joe has been part of the set-up for the last three years and was promoted to head coach at the start of the season.

“I have stepped back into the role after stepping into a different role and will look to carry on Joe’s good work, as well as making my own mark on the team.”

Mold moved out of the relegation zone with a terrific 47-6 triumph in their must win contest at Dolgellau last time out and Heald added: “It was a good win last weekend, not only because it takes us out of the relegation zone, but because we got into some decent shape and linked well between backs and forwards.

“This week is a step-up against top-of-the-league Nant, but we are confident we are moving in the right direction.”

Jack Pearson replaces the injured Dafydd Pritchard, while Joe Jones returns to the squad.

Wrexham, who forced Nant Conwy to battle for their 33-19 success last weekend, are at home to third-placed Pwllheli tomorrow.

Captain Jack Harrison said: “Last weekend showed again that we are able to compete and stay in games against the top teams in this league and we’ll need to prove that again on Saturday.

“Pwllheli are a well respected team in this league, so we know we’ve got to be at our best both in attack and defence.

“While it is promising to be so close in games, sooner or later we need to start getting ourselves on the right side of the results.

“If we can sort our discipline and accuracy then we can hopefully put ourselves in a position to get a result.”

The action starts tonight as Bethesda host Caernarfon.
