By Aled Thomas | 14/09/2018

Matt Silva has named the squad to face Swansea in tonight’s Principality Premiership derby with Swansea (7:10pm).  

Bridgend largely keep faith with much of the squad which has steered them to a positive start to the current campaign. Last time out, the Ravens battled to victory at the Gnoll to back up the double bonus point defeat at Cross Keys on the opening day. 

For the Ravens, the back three remains unchanged with Tyler Williams, Aaron Grabham and Will Holley selected. Morgan Jones comes into midfield alongside captain Nathan Edwards. Jamie Murphy and Chris Williams line-up for the third consecutive week at half back.

Dafi Davies makes his first start of the season at number 8 following injury in a back row with Tom Morgan and Adam O’Driscoll. Shaun O’Rourke and Chris John pair up in the second row, Ollie Evans is the change in the front row alongside Gareth Harvey and Cai Lewis.
