The 97 age group team played a match at Aberdare verses Cwm Draig on Saturday 27th April 2013.  It was an extremely close game with Cwm Draig eventually winning by 11 – 9.   The Newport team should take great pride in the way they battled, as the same match some 12 months earlier they were on the end of a 25 – 2 drubbing.  This just shows how much the team has progressed in the last 12 months.
