West Wales schools will dominate the Road to Principality Senior finals day on Wednesday.

Llanelli’s Ysgol y Strade will defend the crown they won last year (pictured) when they take on Ysgol Maes y Gwendraeth in the Welsh Schools Rugby Union Senior Group U18s Cup Final.

Before that on the Principality Stadium turf, Ysgol Bro Teifi take on Ysgol Bro Pedr in the Plate Final (1pm), while Ysgol Bro Myrddin clash with Ysgol Bro Dinefwr in the Vase Final.

On Tuesday, Ysgol Bro Dinefwr’s U16s girls team challenge for silverware against Ysgol Godre’r Berwyn from North Wales, while on Thursday morning, Mynydd Mawr and Dinefwr U11s lock horns with Swansea Valley. Later in the day, Bro Myrddin’s Year 9 boys side take on Y Pant and Haverfordwest High also battle for the Year 10 trophy.

The Road to Principality 24 will feature 30 cup finals in all over an incredible 10 days of action.

Good luck to all the teams involved!
