Glamorgan Wanderers are pinning their hopes on youth for Sunday's clash against Aberavon in the Principality Premiership.
The Wanderers have struggled this season and travel to the Wizards home ground rooted firmly to the bottom of the points table.
"It will be a bit different for this young group playing on a Sunday but the mindset should be the same, they should be up for the challenge," commented Wanderers coach Chris Ower.
"We are expecting a massive physical challenge but that does not detract from the fact that the Wizards backs can be lethal" added forwards coach Matthew Bolton.
For the trip to Aberavon the Wanderers welcome back the experienced pair of Mark O'Leary and Richard Thomas into the starting line-up up pack with the back row of Dan Crimmins, Lee Highgate and Reuben Tucker getting a vote of confidence from the coaches.
In the backs the young guns continue with, Harry Trelawny aside, an average age of just over 19. Joe Xiberras returns on the wing, to partner Ceri Llewellyn out wide and Elliot Jones continues at full back forming a dynamic back three.
