Speaking ahead of the game, head coach Paul Watkin said: 

“Tomorrow night’s game against Blues South is going to be a tough encounter. They are coming to the Brewery field unbeaten after three games, only conceding 19  points and scoring a total 128 points.

“To combat that we need to be direct and accurate in our attack and retain as much of the ball as possible, in defence we need to be switched on for the whole of the game giving them no time on the ball.

“As for last week’s game it was a good performance and result away from home, a shot in the arm for both players and coaches having performed so poorly the week before.

“This is the last game of block one and I hope that the squad will make the most of this opportunity, leave everything on the park and put in a good performance.”

Elsewhere the Ospreys U16s West host the Dragons South at the Gnoll. They are also looking to end this block with a win after a clinical performance last week saw them clinch a 7-24 win away to Scarlets East.

Speaking ahead of the game, head coach Tom Snelgrove said:

The game against the Dragons is another step along the the development pathway. It's been a quick three months, but as a coaching team we are very pleased with the progress each player has made against their different starting points.

“The players themselves were frustrated with the start against the Blues, and what was pleasing from the coaching group was the players taking responsibility for uncharacteristic errors and identifying their own areas to work on.

“We are expecting another very tough battle against a Dragons team who always provide players and teams with excellent skill sets and physicality, and we are expecting nothing different this time.

“The players return to their clubs after this game and the coaching team will be out watching club and school games to continue the player ID journey. As a coaching team we are already looking forward to block two and feel we have huge growth individually and as a team.”
