TORFAEN Tigers aim to turn the tables on Valley Cougars to triumph in the WRL Premier League grand final at Glamorgan Wanderers RFC tomorrow afternoon.

It is a big day for the Cwmbran-based club with the Under-17s and Under 15s playing finals in Ely against Cardiff Blue Dragons and West Wales Raiders respectively.

The Tigers seniors will hope to take inspiration from the youngsters to repeat their 2013 final success against the Cougars.

They eased past Cardiff Blue Dragons 40-6 in the semi-final thanks to tries by Morgan Knight, Liam Silver (2), Dave Brunnock (2). Geoff Hick and Euaun Morris plus five conversions by Fraser Stroud.

Chairman Rob Davies, who could take both a playing and coaching role on the day, expects a hard-fought encounter against the Cougars, who won the regular season games 24-14 and 46-24.

“Tigers versus Cougars is the final that most people predicted back in May,” he said. “The clubs have a fierce rivalry built on mutual respect.

“They’ve done the double over us this year so we are desperate to repeat 2013’s heroics and take the bragging rights into 2018.

“One thing’s for certain, whoever wins there’ll be 34 bodies waking up on Monday morning knowing that they’ve been in a battle.”

Valley Cougars have some injury concerns but their coach Lee Goddard knows that whoever is selected will give 100 per cent.

He said: “We may have beaten Torfaen twice this season and we may be undefeated but that means nothing when it comes to finals as we know very well.”

The Tigers also competed in three finals last year only to return to Torfaen without any trophies.

“For our under 15s, it’s been a season of continual improvement as we built on the momentum that was generated last season,” said Davies.

“The players have enjoyed the opportunity to play rugby league in what has been a competitive league.

“We know the Raiders are a good side who pose a tough test and that whoever is crowned champions at the end of the game will have earned the title.

“It’s been a frustrating season at under-17s as a number of sides pulled out during the season but for the third time in three years, these two groups of players will battle it out for the right to be crowned Welsh Champions.

“Cardiff were favourites in 2015 but we came away with the win, whilst we were favourites last year but Cardiff gained vengeance in the dying moments.

“It promises to be a lively, physical encounter with both sides knowing not to underestimate the other.”

Admission is £5 for adults, £3 for juniors between 12 and 16 and free for under-12s.
