This evening's scheduled game between the Blues Under 18s and Scarlets under 18s in the WRU Age Grade Championship at Cardiff Arms Park has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
It would have seen the battle of the top two in the WRU Age Grade Under 18 Championship as the Blues were aiming to topple top-dogs the Scarlets at the Cardiff Arms Park.
Although they have played two games more than their closest rivals, the Scarlets lead the championship table with 23 points from six games.
Furthermore, although the Blues remain as firm favourites to finish on top of the pile, the Scarlets would have confirmed their place in the final if they could have reaped revenge this evening, for their 18-6 home defeat at the hands of the Blues back in September. However that has been put on hold due to the poor weather conditions.

Twelve young people have been selected to follow a one year WRU Coach Core apprenticeship programme. Coach Core was set up by the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry as part of the Olympics legacy in 2012 and the Duke of Cambridge was on hand to meet the apprentices on their first day in the job. The programme has been funded by the Hunter Foundation.
The WRU has launched a campaign to create a long term legacy for Welsh club rugby by highlighting the advantages of volunteering. Rhian Edwards, a volunteer at Seven Sisters, has enjoyed many benefits of her volunteering at a grassroots rugby club including being part of the Rugby World Cup volunteer workforce after being nominated by the WRU - and the WRU is asking for more people to develop their 'Welsh rugby roots'.
