From the match programme:-
"Newbridge make the short journey down the Western Valley with a reputation for playing genuine open rugby. They have had their lean periods this season and can also boast excellent victories, but their real success is the brand of rugby they insist on playing. Their ability and confidence in exploiting their desire always to open up the game has gained them unstinted praise. They won the game at Newbridge last season by 9 pts. to 6 pts. They are naturally very proud of their student player from the North of England, namely W. G. D. Morgan who played for England in all their games this season. He has brought an added honour to his home club by being included in the Barbarians party on their South Wales Easter Tour."
"To-day will be our first Saturday afternoon home game since we played Cardiff way back on March 5th. Our appetites will be whetted this afternoon and we can carry on with the good Easter fare on Monday, when we meet the "Exiles," and close our home fixtures for the season on Tuesday against the "Baa-Baas." Talking of the "Baa-Baas," and keeping our fingers crossed, we have not lost on this ground since last Easter Tuesday when we went down to the famous touring side."
"Glyn Davidge who has courageously taken many hard knocks this season sustained a bad ankle injury last Saturday. He is definitely out for the rest of the season and we wish him a swift and complete recovery. B. Danahar will complete the back row in his absence, but will switch positions with Brian Cresswell."
"Next week-end will be another busy time for us because we shall be off on the Devon Tour which will wind up the season. The following Saturday, April 30th the Welsh Sevens will be staged at the Arms Park Cardiff. The tournament will commence at 12.45 p.m. Our 1st Round opponents are Maesteg and the approximate time will be 2 p.m. Stand tickets are now available at the Club Office. Admission to the Enclosure and Field will be through the turnstiles. Those of you who have attended the "Sevens" can vouch for a wonderful afternoon's sport and those who have not yet indulged in this continuous exhilarating form of rugger do not know just what they are missing."
"Next Monday the kick-off will be at 3.30 p.m., and on Tuesday, before the Barbarians game which is also scheduled for 3.30 p.m., a curtain raiser has been arranged, with Newport Schoolboys doing the honours. Two of the Newport boys are in the Welsh team at Twickenham today."
"The last two games, in which we beat Neath 6-0 at the Gnoll, but went down by a similar margin before the '' Tigers,'" have proved costly in terms of injuries. These will add considerably to the rigours imposed by these three holiday games. Glyn Davidge, out of the remainder of the season, will be especially missed."
"We can rely on Newbridge, much improved of late, to give us a severe tussle. London Welsh we expect to provide strong opposition also, and this should be a good open game played, as usual, in the traditional holiday spirit. The greatest thrill and test will probably be the encounter with the famous Baa-Baas and even though both teams will have had a surfeit of Easter football, they will no doubt be able to rouse the crowd with enterprising and entertaining rugby."
"As the season, as far as home games are concerned, will end with the holiday programme, the committee of the Rugby Supporters' Club take this opportunity of thanking all who have given us assistance during the season, hoping you will be with us again next season."
