1913-14 under Harry Uzzell started with defeat at home to Bristol and a further 3 defeats followed before December. Newport then beat Southampton Trojans 37 v 0 with wing George Hirst scoring 5 tries. In February Newport took Gloucester's home record.
Herbert Wreford played 31 games and proved to be a reliable fullback and an outstanding tackler. He had come late to the game having previously played fullback as an Association player. Harry Uzzell stood out as a player and was one of Newport's best forwards and Neil McPherson started to come into prominence also. Len Attewell, a big strong player made his first appearance and another forward Dan Spanswick did well.
W. Martin (35), R. Plummer (32) and H. Wreford (31) led the appearances while leading try scorers were G. Hirst (16) and R. Plummer (15).
