Pontardawe & Porthcawl book final spot

The semi-finals of the U15 Ospreys Cup competitions took place at the weekend, with 16 clubs from the region going head to head.


The Ospreys Cup has established itself in recent seasons as the competition that matters to clubs in the region at U15 and U16 level, with more teams than ever signing up for this year’s competition.


Unique to the region, the Ospreys Cup sees teams from Bridgend, Neath Port Talbot and Swansea going head-to-head, with everyone offered a chance to play for silverware via a Cup, Plate, Bowl, Shield and Challenge Cup format beyond the round robin pool stages.


This season’s Cup competition saw everybody’s favourites Pencoed defeated 13-10 by Porthcawl in an epic game that saw a nail biting ending as Pencoed camped on their opponents line in the closing minutes but unable to to deliver the knockout blow.


Porthcawl will face Pontardawe in the final, who beat Morriston 33-10 in a reversal of the pool stage contest that saw Morriston win by a couple of points.


There was a landmark in the plate semi-final between Swansea Uplands and Tondu, which was the first refereed by a female official, a game which finished 34 - 24.


The tournament has proven to be a success once again, throwing up some shocks along the way, and the new format of the competition has been acknowledged as assisting with the development of young players across the region.


The finals will all be played on Sunday 11th May at Llandarcy Academy of Sport.
