Nant Conwy are perhaps the story of the weekend, after rising to the top of the Scarlets region for the second season in a row, with a 7-5 victory over Carmarthen last month, they now face a tough away play off in Bonymaen. Pontypool United, last season's Champions, have the other home draw after topping the Dragons region and they welcome Blues regional table-toppers Rumney to town.
Nant Conwy disposed of Bonymaen in last year's semi-finals before going down 17-0 in the final held at Llanidloes RFC, but they still claim the underdogs tag for their visit to the Ospreys regional winners.
"We have a strong set of backs led by our centre and captain Iolo Evans and we have plenty of experience in the side now so, we shouldn't be daunted by the prospect of travelling to Bonymaen," said Nant Conwy Youth Honorary Secretary Eryl Owain.
"That said, we've had to replace our entire front five since last season and the home advantage is bound to be a help to the opposition. Although we remain extremely confident, we think we probably go into the game as underdogs.
"North Wales rugby is certainly thriving at youth level and has been doing so for the last four or five years. We like to think we are leading the way in Nant Conwy Youth and giving clubs around the rest of the country something to think about."
Both matches will be played over a period of 70 minutes and sides field teams between the ages of 16 and 19.
