Ralph accepted the captaincy again in 1933-34 but succumbed to constant pressure from Leeds and went North before the season started. Bill Everson stepped into the breach after John Evans declined due to business reasons.
A number of new players came to the fore - Bill Johnson, a wing from Pill Harriers, Jim Hawkins, a scrum half from Risca and Albert Fear, a wing forward from Abertillery. John Evans moulded a collection of mainly young forwards into one of the finest packs in the country. Albert Fear, Fred Emms, W. G. C. Williams, Jack Bowen, George George and Vivian Law completed a pack that gained high respect. Notable among the backs were Jack Adams and Harry Wyles and several players were tried at outside half before Joe Dunn, a young Newport High School boy settled down to be Hawkins's partner. Towards the end of the season, Bob Allen joined the Newport police. His only football experience was as a professional soccer player with Wolverhampton Wanderers! He decided to try his hand at rugby and later developed into one of Newport's most talented players. This was only after the Welsh Rugby Union amended its laws on professionalism.
The Barbarians beat Penarth, Swansea, Cardiff and Newport for the 4th successive season and the Newport match was controlled at Barbarians request, by Newport's Tommy Vile. John Evans was only 21 when he was chosen to captain Wales on his debut vs England - his only cap. W. Johnson was leading try scorer with just 7 and H. Wyles and W. Everson led the appearances with 36.
