The Ospreys and Scarlets will meet in tomorrow's
The Ospreys and Scarlets will meet in tomorrow's <Friday> WRU Reebok Regional Championship under 18 final at Aberavon's Talbot Athletic Ground (7.0).
The two sides were due to meet at the same venue two weeks ago but were denied that chance by the inclement weather.
However, at the second time of asking, the eagerly anticpated repeat of last season's final should get underway.
Both sides won their final group games to make sure of their respective places in the final - a repeat of last season's final which the Scarlets won comfortably.
And although the holders will once again start as warm favourites, the Ospreys are confident of upsetting the applecart and avenging last season's disappoitment at the Millennium Stadium.
Regional high performance manager Dai Arthur said, "We have done well all season. Like last year, we are not a side studded with stars, but we have a great bunch of lads and they certainly gel together on the field.
"The Scarlets have also performed well this season and I suppose many people will fancy them to win it. Having said that, we have beaten them already this season and there is no reason why we cannot achieve such a result again."
Arthur's opposite number Darryl Hill said, "We had a great day in Cardiff last season and we are certainly looking forward to this game.
"It has been a tough group, so to come through to the final is a feat in itself."
The Ospreys made sure of their passage through to the final with a 15-3 success over the Blues whilst the Dragons made doubly sude of their place with a 22-13 defeat of the Dragons.
Josh Turnbull, man of the match Daniel Evans and Jamie Charlton scored tries in that game and that trio will be hoping to leave an indelible mark on this contest.
