"Newport and Bath are not old and traditional rivals. As a matter of fact, it was only between the two Wars that fixtures between the clubs commenced - their first meeting was actually at Newport on December 3rd, 1921 - and since that date they have only appeared on the Newport fixture list at irregular intervals. Nevertheless it is true to state that their meetings have always provided the most attractive and enjoyable Rugby, and it is with pleasurable anticipation that we look forward to to-day's game on the Athletic Grounds. Newport drew a record crowd when they played at Bath in March, and we understand a good body of Bath supporters are accompanying their team for the return game to-day. We are very pleased indeed to have them with us, and are sure they will find the atmosphere of our Grounds most friendly, with a quick appreciation of the delights of Rugby from either side."
"It is good news that A. H. Rowlands, the Newport centre of out-standing promise and ability, will again be available for the team over the Easter matches. Rowlands is now a student at Wrexham Training College, and latterly he has found it very difficult to make the long journey to take his place in the side."
"There will be a match of special interest on the Grounds on Thursday, April 18th, when the Newport (St. Julians) High School XV. meet a Monmouthshire Army Cadet Force XV. in aid of the Sports Fund of the latter. The School XV. have reached prodigious heights this season. On four occasions they have vanquished their School Opponents by over 50 points, and in all their games have piled up over 400 points against a mere 26. Admission prices will be 6d. and 1s. Kick-off is at 6 p.m. J. C. Hawkins, the Newport captain, will referee the game."
