A THREE-MATCH losing streak has seen former Principality Premiership East pacesetters Bedwas drop from first to third in the blink of an eye.

Last month’s break in league action appears to have hit Ian Gardner’s troops hard, with successive defeats to Pontypridd, Newport and Merthyr since fixtures resumed.

Tomorrow sees the Bridge Field side make the short trip to Bargoed (kick-off noon) for what should be a tough test against the Bulls.

Bedwas had no problem in the reverse fixture earlier this season, running out comfortable 37-5 winners and scoring five tries.

Things could be a lot closer this time around, although tomorrow’s hosts have also lost four in a row.

But while they may need an upturn in fortunes on the field, there has been some positive news off it.

Directors put forward a proposal at the club’s AGM regarding a development of Bridge Field which would “seek to safeguard” it as a “centre for the development and playing of rugby in Bedwas”.

The proposal was approved by members and now the directors will come back to them with a more developed plan for further scrutiny.

Meanwhile, also at the AGM it was announced that Russ Davey had resigned as a director, while all other serving directors were re-elected unopposed.

Two vacancies on the board went to Bill Price and Will Rees, who join David Cousins, Mark Lewis and Tony Rees.
