"Formed in 1862, and claimed to be the oldest of all Rugby Clubs, there is an almost affectionate warmth in our welcome to Blackheath on the occasion of their visit to Newport to-day - their first since February 25th, 1939."
"May we give expression of our delight to both players and officials of Blackheath at the re-formation of the club which has made the resumption of fixtures possible. Attractive and open Rugby, which has always characterised their meetings with Newport, has earned Blackheatii an enviable reputation of popularity and sportsmanship on the Athletic Grounds, and we know our supporters will be most generous in their appreciation of this grand club, whose record and tradition in all spheres of Rugby football so matches our own."
"Few of the large crowd who witnessed last Saturday's game with Cardiff will cavil at the justness of Newport's defeat in a game which we considered to be a thoroughly good one, and was most notably marked, perhaps, by the excellence of movement which merited each of the four tries scored. There will be little regret at the loss of Newport's unbeaten record, and perhaps with some justification, we can now anticipate a greater degree of enterprise and sparkle in their play, which has been somewhat latent this season. The possibilities of the present combination are not in doubt, and only a persistent faith in attack and development of three-quarter play is needed to bring them to the surface."
"Newport will be well represented in the Monmouthshire XV. to meet Glamorgan at Neath on October 17th. Jack Bale will be leading the side, and selected with him are D. R. Morgan, K. Jones, A. H. Rowlands, G. Parsons and R. T. Evans."
"Mapson Williams, the old Newport forward, sends Rugby greetings from Australia. The message was conveyed by Trevor Foster, who has just returned from the Rugby League Tour in Australia."
"By the way, Haydn Thomas, the Newport inside half, is a cousin of Trevor Foster."
"And talking of Australia, we shall be welcoming an Australian Touring Side in this country next winter. It will be the visit postponed in 1939 through the outbreak of war."
"Rugby is again to be played in the Newport Elementary Schools, and the Newport Club is issuing complimentary tickets to players from each school to witness Newport's, home games. In next week's programme we hope to publish an article on the aims and ambitions of this worthily re-started venture."
"Monmouthshire play Glamorgan at Neath on Thursday next, and the return match in Monmouthshire will take place on January 9th. It is also hoped to arrange a tour in Somerset and Cornwall some time in March."
