Cardiff Blues Under-18s resume Regional Age grade Championship rugby tonight at St Helens as they tackle Ospreys Under-18s (kick-off 7.15pm).

Number Eight Aled Ward captains the team with Sion Edwards and Alun Lawrence also called up into a new-look back row.
A brand new front row sees Eddie Drake, Iestyn Harris and Ben Warren pack down.
