The race for a place in the WRU Reebok Regional under 16 Championship final will continue into the final weeks of qualifying after the Ospreys and Blues South shared 34 points at St Helens last night.
With four of the five regions still in with a chance of reaching next month' final - only the Dragons will definitely miss out - the table-topping Ospreys were unable to make home advantage count in a game of six tries and two conversions.
The Ospreys led 12-10 at the interval courtesy of tries from full back Tom Prydie, who also added a conversion and no.8 Dan Baker, whilst after the interval, Brian Barlow added a third try, which went unconverted.
For the Blues South there were two first half tries from hooker Mike Savery whilst after the break, a Ruben Tucker try and diggy Bird conversion made sure the vicitors went home with a point.
The game between the Scarlets and Dragons, at Narberth, was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. A new date for the game has yet to be confirmed.
