The SWALEC Bowl draw is still very confused with so many round three ties still to take place.
Only one tie has been settled and that will see Trebanos of Five South West entertain Ystradgynlais of Four South West. The odds favour the home side as Trebanos have won all four league matches at home this season while Ystradgynlais have yet to be successful on the road and are currently struggling near the bottom of their division.
Trebanos, who were beaten finalists last season, have crossed for 27 tries in their eight league matches and will be confident of knocking out their opponents to keep the dream of a second successive final.
Cardiff University are one of only two students sides left in the competition and if they can beat Abercwmboi in the re-arranged round two tie, they will make the short trip to Caedelyn Park to meet Rhiwbina of Four South East. The Squirrels are currently flying high in their division and will prove tough opponents whoever they meet.
Cardiff Medicals have to see off Old Illtydians of Five South East before starting to think of an away trip to either Cefn Coed, also of Five South East, or Nelson who play in Four West.
Shotton Steel will host Bala of Two North if they can beat off the challenge from COBRA, from the same division.
