Eleven year olds Megan Rowles and Alex Banton of Bassaleg High School made their second double appearance as mascots after a successfull outing last season. With Newport yet to record a win in the league this season the pressure was on to inspire.

With a little help from young Casey from Crindau Junior School, the team first met up with popular lock Adam Frampton for a pre match photo shoot, before Megan and Alex lead out the team with skipper Lee Beach.

With a tremendous turnaround in form, Newport recorded a huge victory over rivals Swansea, possibly with a little inspiration from our young duo.
