The Ospreys Under 16s can re-apply some pressure at the top of the WRU Age Grade Championship if they defeat North Wales at Wrexham on Sunday.
Victories over the Dragons, 21-17, and Blues South, 14-8, has left the region with two wins from four games to date. And though they trail runaway leaders Blues North, they can certainly close the gap with a significant victory over the North this weekend.
Admittedly, the Ospreys will have to guard against complacency as the North produced their best performance of the season last weekend - going down 18-12 to a strong Dragons side.
Iolo Evans and Andrew Oakden scored on that occasion and both players are included in a side that sees goal-kicker Alex Schwarz on the bench for the first time this season.
The North Wales Under 18s have found things particularly tough this term - in three games this season they have conceded 26 tries and 155 points.
Still, home advantage might count for something against an Ospreys side who went down 23-13 to the Blues last time out.
