COBRA Rugby Club is relishing its return to the big time.

The Meifod club secured promotion to North Wales League One as second division champions last season.

Title winning coach Rhodri Jones remains at the the helm and joined by team manager Wayne Smith and newly appointed forwards coach Robert Rougerie.

On the pitch little has changed with Hywel Jones captaining the side.

Hywel Jones said: “It’s certainly going to be a challenging season as we take on the top sides in North Wales once again.

“Having played in division one previously we know that there is no easy game and we will need to turn Cae Cobra into a fortress and try and nick some wins on the road.

“We’ve had a slightly disjointed pre season but hopefully by the time the season starts the lads will be ready to go.”
