Glyncoch are defending champions of the SWALEC Bowl.
SWALEC Bowl holders Glyncoch will travel to Six South Central side Cambrian Welfare if they overcome fellow Five South Central outfit Hirwaun in a re-arranged Round Three tie.
Having already beaten Hirwaun 37-3 earlier in the league season, the Gladiators will be confident of holding on to the trophy for a little longer.
Last season's losing finalists, New Tredegar are in the same position after also having their round three match at Hartridge postponed. If they overcome that obstacle a visit to Newport Saracens of Five East awaits them.
Tycroes are establishing themselves as one of the Bowl favourites after delivering a 55-0 thrashing to Cefneithin with Dean Bromham bagging 25 points. The unbeaten Four West leaders entertain Llanybydder in Round Four, but as they only managed a 16-8 win when the sides met earlier in the league season, the Teifisiders will be keen on gaining revenge.
Four North Wales sides are through to this stage with the top side in Two North, Denbigh, travelling to second-placed COBRA, while Shotton Steel play host to Llangollen.
Four East leaders Cilfynydd won 16-0 at Old Illtydians to set up a visit to Lawrenny Avenue in Cardiff where they will meet Canton. The Five South East side overcame Aberbargoed 32-13 to add to a previous victory over Clwb Rygbi 25-19, and after two away ties Canton will be looking forward to staging a home match.
After a bye in Round One and a walkover in Round Two, New Dock Stars finally won their way through on the field with a hard-earned 16-12 victory at Fall Bay. Their reward is a home game against Penybanc, leaders of Five South West who routed Burry Port 46-0.
