This is 41st. time that the best 44 U18 players appear on the same arena to play against each other.
Both teams will want to make an impression as has been tradional in the previous encounters, and it is from this group that the majority of players will go on to represent Wales in the future.
The game is being played a month later this season and as both teams have already played, playersand coaches will be more than ready for this encounter.
The timing of this fixture will give the WRU management team (FIRA) a golden opportunity to view the talent that will be available th them next season (2003/04)
The 'John Smiths' Gnoll, Neath is becoming the traditional home for this fixture as the venue seems to attract a very good crowd and bring in much needed cash for both the Youth & Schools Unions.

Gavin Henson Andy Powell Robert Sidoli Mark Jones Matthew J Watkins Ian Gough Vernon Cooper Gavin Thomas Matthew Brayley Jonathon Thomas Andy Williams Paul James and many more.
