Blues Regional Performance Manager Gafyn Cooper and his age grade coaches have finalised their squads for this weekends WRU championship games.
The Under U18 group has made two changes to their starting line-up to face the Scarlets at Stradey Park on Sunday with Rhys Dyer coming in for Gareth Williams and Matthew Edwards replacing James Egan in the backs and Scott Andrews replacing Patrick Palmer at tight head prop. The Blues will be looking to continue their impressive start after beating the Dragons 27-14 at Sardis Road in their last outing.
The Blues North U16 having had a bye in the last round get their campaign off the ground against the Ospreys at Corus RFC on Saturday morning 11am, and pick from a full strength squad. The North will be hoping to go one better than the regional colleagues (Blues South) after the Ospreys comfortably notched up a 17-5 victory on the opening round of the championship at Llanrumney.
The South will be hoping for a much improved performance against the Scarlets and have made five squad changes after the disappointing defeat to the Ospreys.
