Llanelli face holders Neath in the SWALEC Cup final at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday with both clubs set to add to the illustrious history of Welsh rugby's oldest cup competition.
Cup kings Llanelli have lifted the trophy a record 13 times already, but Neath will be looking to close down their West Wales rivals with their sixth win since claiming the first title in 1972, the inaugural year of the competition.
Neath could also retain the trophy for the first time since 1990, a feat the team in Scarlet achieved in 1993.
WRU chairman David Pickering, who lifted the trophy himself in 1989 - playing for the Neath team which beat Llanelli 14-13 in front of a 58,000 strong crowd - believes the current crop of stars will do justice to the proud history of the competition.
"Neath have done extremely well to book themselves in the final for the second year running and Llanelli have a rich pedigree in this competition so we should have quite a game on our hands," said Pickering.
"My loyalties will certainly be split having won the cup with both Llanelli (1985) and Neath so I will be celebrating whoever wins.
"I've played alongside some of the biggest stars in the game in this competition with the likes of Ray Gravelle, JJ Williams and Phil Bennett in the Llanelli team and renowned Welsh All Blacks like Kevin Phillips and Brian Williams.
"The SWALEC Cup final at the Millennium Stadium is always a great day out for dedicated fans of Welsh rugby and both sides have the talent and ability to produce a spectacle on Saturday which is deserving of the proud history of this competition."
Rugby fans can be guaranteed four hours of action at the cathedral of Welsh rugby for as little as £15 when Llanelli take on Neath in the final of the SWALEC Cup on Saturday 9th May.
The Millennium Stadium will play host to both the Swalec Bowl and Swalec Plate final prior to the big kick-off between two of the club giants of Welsh rugby.
Lampeter Town and Morriston will contest the SWALEC Bowl final (KO 1pm). That will be followed by the SWALEC Plate final between Ammanford and Risca (KO 3.30pm).
Ticket prices are £15 for adults and £5 for juniors (under 16). All three games are covered by the one admission price and ticket. Spectators will be allowed to leave and re-enter the stadium throughout the day.
