A try from wing Panache Rushesha and a conversion and penalty from outside half Jordan Williams earned the Scarlets Under 16s victory over the Blues South and subsequently a place in the WRU Age Grade Championship final last night.
The South, who needed just a losing bonus point from the game to book their place in the final against Blues North, pressed until late on in the game at Llandovery, but eventually went down 10-0.
The date of the final has yet to be confirmed but Kevin George, WRU regional performance development manager for the Scarlets said; "It was a tough game and went right to the wire.The boys battled to the end and got what they deserved.
"It is something for everyone to look forward to at the end of a very hard but rewarding season so far."

Twelve young people have been selected to follow a one year WRU Coach Core apprenticeship programme.

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.
