A look back on the U18 WRU Championship
Back

Whilst the Senior team are still in the thick of it with their competitions, it’s time to look back on the younger generation of Scarlets with the under 18 team and their performance in the WRU Regional Championship.

 

Scarlets U18 started their journey back in August 2018 where first two wins saw them dominating the Ospreys and RGC. As the competition proceeded it was two close losses against the Dragons and Cardiff Blues finishing off before the new year. The new year began with a positive win against the Ospreys again. The Scarlets were defeated mid February by the Dragons who have shone through this years competition and were titled the champions at Ystrad Mynach after their clash against the Scarlets. A positive ending to a great WRU Regional Competition this year for the Scarlets with a draw against Cardiff Blues and a brilliant win under tough storm conditions up in North Wales against RGC.

 

Paul Fisher, Scarlets U18 Head Coach explained; “The U18 team demonstrated great development throughout this years regional program with several players showing personal development as well as team involvement.

 

“It’s great to see the future generation adapting their skills physically and mentally as the weeks went on. A few times they needed a bigger uplift from a previous loss especially after the Dragons were crowned the champions with two games to go, but it was great to see them getting the job done and we’re rewarded with a great finish to the competition placing second in the table.

 

“The management team are very proud as am I on their performance and can’t wait to see the individual players shine through our Academy and further their future in West Wales rugby.”
