Torfaen Tigers looking to clinch top spot on intriguing final day

First published in Sport

TORFAEN Tigers are attempting to clinch top spot in the South Wales Conference when they host Valley Cougars A on the final day of the regular season.

It's not only a big occasion for the Tigers on the pitch as they are holding a fun day at Cwmbran RFC to raise funds for the Shae Button Fund with a bouncy castle, pony rides, face painting, games, stalls and a touch rugby competition.

Signed Wigan Warriors shirt and Wales World Cup balls will be auctioned after the game.

Currently Aber Valley Wolves and Tigers are level on competition points with just scoring points difference separating them, Wolves with plus 206 and Tigers with plus 204.

Whoever wins by the biggest margin this afternoon will clinch the league leaders spot, with the Wolves hosting winless Cardiff Demons in Senghenydd.

If either of the top two slip up then Bridgend Blue Bulls can sneak a home play-off semi-final if they beat Gwendraeth Valley Raiders at Mynydd y Garreg RFC.

The Raiders only need a draw to clinch the final play-off spot but if they lose then events in Maesglas will be key.

If Newport Titans beat Cardiff Spartans at Newport Saracens RFC then it'll go down to Raiders' game in hand.

They take on Valley Cougars at BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park on Sunday, July 27 as part of a big day of rugby league in the capital that also sees South Wales Scorpions take on London Skolars.

The Titans will be keen to heap the pressure on the Raiders and are seeking a double after winning the reverse fixture against the Spartans at Trelai Park 52-8, crossing for nine tries.

Today's fixtures: Torfaen Tigers v Valley Cougars (Cwmbran RFC), Gwendraeth Valley Raider v Bridgend Blue Bulls (Mynydd y Garreg RFC), Newport Titans v Cardiff Spartans (Newport Saracens RFC), Aber Valley Wolves v Cardiff Demons (Senghenydd RFC)
