From the match programme:-
"Apart from the usual great interest which attends a Newport and Cardiff clash, the uppermost thought in the minds of the majority of Newport supporters today will be whether in this third meeting of the season the long sequence of Cardiff ascendancy over the home side can be halted. It is remarkable that Newport cannot claim a victory in the last 14 games played between the Clubs. Twice they have drawn, and on several occasions come very near to success, but the fact is that on practically every occasion in this post-war series, which has witnessed so many splendid matches, victory has gone to the better of the two sides."
"And what of today's game? Even if the exact composition of both teams were known at the time of writing - and injuries make it difficult for either club to announce their settled combination prior to the match - it would still be rather a question of conjecture as to whether Newport can strike long eluded success. If it is fair to state that Cardiff are not now quite the great force they have been in Welsh Rugby, it is equally fair to admit that they are still a very fine side. Newport, after a really bad start to the season, have improved to such an extent that in 12 games played since December 17th they have not been beaten. Most of these successes have been convincingly gained and the mood of the team itself is certainly one of confidence in their ability to turn the tide on their old rivals."
"If the Newport side fields as selected it will certainly be at full strength. In the backs Ken Jones is fit again and will resume on the right wing, while G. Gibbon who was down with 'flu last week hopes to be fully recovered to play at full-back. In the forwards it is good news that Tom Sterry, whom it was thought would be unable to play for some weeks, is already fit to take his place, while Doug. Dando, after a run out with the United side last Saturday, is also making a welcome return to the pack after missing seven matches through illness."
"Applications from Club Members for Stand Tickets for the Wales v. France International at Cardiff on March 25th. must be in the hands of the Foo/tball Hon. Secretary by Monday next, March 6th. An announcement will be made later regarding the disposal of Field Tickets allocated for this match."
