Gogledd Cymru Under 16s will be hoping to put a spanner in the works of another WRU Age Grade Championship side in Ruthin on Sunday, kick off 12.30.
Victory for Blues North, with a bonus point, would assure the region of a place in next month's final at St Helens.
However, coaches Dale McIntosh and Lee Jarvis know they will have their work cut out against a Gogledd Cymru side who are fresh from beating the Scarlets at Llandovery.
That victory followed on from an outstanding performance - albeit a losing one - against Blues South and a deserved home win against the Dragons.
A third victory of the season will not be enough to earn them the opportunity of joining one of the other regional sides in the final, but it would provide further confirmation of the growth of age grade rugby in the north.
Gogledd Cymru: I Evans; A Oakden, O Aled, N Hughes, A Channer-Hughes; J Williams, A Schwarz; E Mason, G Morgan, O Hughes, J Simm, O Jones, G Jones, Tudor Parry, Tomas Parry. Replacements: B Allsop, M Bevan, B Powlay, J Weaver, W Mitchelmore, J Davies, O Parkinson
