Viessmann Ospreys Cup U16s Finals Preview

Sunday 28th April will see 8 teams take to the field at Llandarcy for the culmination of the 2018/19 U16’s Viessmann Ospreys Cup. But who will take home the silverware?

Since kicking off in late September there has been plenty ofon field action in the U16’s Viessmann Ospreys Cup with tight games and great wins for teams along the way. But all the action comes down to one thing, Finals Day, which is held this Sunday, 28th April, at Llandarcy Academy of Sport. Eight teams, four games, but who will be ending their junior rugby careers with some silverware?

Shield: Kenfig Hill v Dunvant

It wasn’t a great pool stage for the boys from Bridgend but they convincingly beat Neath Athletic in the semi finals 24 – 0 to secure their finals spot. Meanwhile it was mixed results for Dunvant in the pool stages however two great wins in the quarters and semi finals, where they beat Vardre 65 – 15 and Pencoed 32- 0, mean they reach the finals with some confidence. No doubt an exciting battle will ensue between the teams from the East and West of the region.

Cup: Gowerton v Bridgend Athletic

The Cup final is set to be an absolute cracker with very little between the teams. Gowerton, who were beaten in the finals of the Plate in the 15’s competition last season, will be looking to get their hands on the prize this time. They go into the final game without a single loss in the competition this season however will face tough opponents in Bridgend Athletic who themselves have only tasted defeat once in the 2018/19 Ospreys Cup.

Plate: Tonmawr v Briton Ferry

Things couldn’t be tighter in the Plate Final, in an exact replica of last year’s U15’s Plate Final it’s Tonmawr v Briton Ferry once again battling it out. Last year Tonmawr came away with the spoils, winning 24-17, but with both teams going into the final game having won 4 and lost 1 so far this competition it really could be anybody’s game.

Bowl: Porthcawl v Tondu

Out of the two teams it’s Tondu who have secured the big wins in the pool stages of the 2018/19 Ospreys Cup, securing some convincingly high points margins along the way. It’s been a tougher route to the finals for Porthcawl with rather tighter wins in the quarter and semi finals to reach the final game. But who will it be on the day who walks away with the spoils? Make sure you join us at Llandarcy Academy of Sport next Sunday to find out.
