"Newport conclude their Easter Holiday fixtures with the visit of the Barbarians, which provides what can fairly be described as the most popular fixture of the season. To few clubs comes the opportunity of matching their strength against a blend of some of the best talent in the four countries, and it is only right that the good folk of Penarth, Cardiff, Swansea and Newport so adequately give expression to the privilege that is almost solely theirs."
"If one's mind travels back to the Barbarians' match of last Easter Tuesday we would suggest that, in defeating Newport by 19 points to three, the Barbarians on that day gave the finest display of Rugby that has been witnessed at Newport for many a long year. There was no vestige of disgrace in defeat, rather let it be said that the Newport side that day gave all they knew. But they came against a team of very great players, all of whom in their best form, contributed to a display that is of happy memory."
"This year, with England engaged yesterday in the last International match of the tournament, against France in Paris, the Barbarians include only a small sprinkling of Englishmen in their ranks. But with twelve of Ireland's team that won the Triple Crown, and a total of 27 Internationals in their party, the strength of the Tourists is beyond question, and although at the time of writing these notes the composition of their side to meet Newport is unknown, it is certain that a very powerful combination will receive their customary great welcome at the Athletic Grounds this afternoon."
"Next Saturday Newport entertain Gloucester in their last home match of the season. To complete their programme following this there are a further four away games, at, Cardiff, Swansea, Neath and Newbridge."
"Many Supporters will be interested in the resumption of the Newport Junior Rugby League Cup competitions, the finals of which will be played on the Newport Athletic Grounds on Thursday, April 8th. In the Supporters' Cup Final Whiteheads meet Risca 'Quins, while the W. J. Wall Cup will be contested between Croesyceiliog and Newport Youth XV. The first game will start at 5.30."
"The Newport Athletic Club express their sincere appreciation to the Management of Messrs. Stewarts and Lloyds who so kindly presented the new Goal Posts."
The Football Argus reported the gate receipts as being ?786.
