When the Young Ospreys under 16's host the Blues North at Llandarcy Academy of Sport on Wednesday evening (7.15pm kick off), somebodies one hundred per cent record will have to give.
With a real contest for places in the team this time the coaching staff give last seasons scrum half Ryan Jones the opportunity to push his cause forward. Porthcawl schoolboy Tom Prydie plays at full back for the second consecutive game, even though the bulk of his rugby has been as a centre. While the centre partnership is an all Afan Nedd affair with Kyle Blackmore and Dean Howells starting a game together for the first time at this level. Also pleasing for the squad is the return of prop David Saines, who has been sidelined with a hairline fracture of the skull. The team is as follows:15. Tom Prydie14. Eli Walker13. Dean Howells12.
