West Wales derby week gets underway tonight

The Ospreys U18's will go searching for their first league victory when they welcome the Scarlets to Llandarcy this evening.

Following the postponement of the original fixture, the Eyasses will finally get to lock horns against their West Walian rivals tonight before the senior teams clash in the big derby match on Friday.

After suffering a defeat in their opening league match away at the Dragons, the Eyasses will be looking to make amends against a Scarlets team who are also seeking their first win of the league season.

The Ospreys surrendered a 12 point lead when they fell to a 23-18 loss against the Dragons whereas the Scarlets were narrowly defeated by the Blues at Parc y Scarlets.

With it all to play for, the match has the potential to be a mouth-watering encounter and the Eyasses will hope to set the precedent for the seniors ahead of the big game on Friday.
