NEWPORT RFC has extended its association with official transport partner, Newport Bus, for the 2018/19 season.

To mark the occasion, and to help promote the club throughout the region, the transport firm will soon unveil a vehicle decorated in black and amber to be used on its network of services.

Morgan Stevens, operations director of Newport Transport, said: "It's excellent news that we are the transport provider of choice for the team and their supporters to away games again this season.

"We are also delighted that we can assist with promoting our City's rugby team throughout our network."

Season ticket holders will also get free bus travel to and from home games when presenting their season ticket to the bus driver.

Mark Workman, team manager of Newport RFC, said: "The team and supporters are looking forward to using Newport Bus for our away transport this season.

"The news that home fans can use our local bus company free for home games is also exciting news and we look forward to building on the partnership in future years."

Newport Bus has also joined other local companies in supporting Newport RFC by having their logo on the famous black and amber kit.
