The time has finally come for the ultimate Scarlets U16s derby of the season. The West team will host the East down at Tenby RFC, Wednesday 27th of February, KO 19:15.
All players involved are relishing the opportunity. “We are still looking to improve our attacking game in particular” said Alun Jones, East Head Coach. “We have some exciting players who enjoy running with ball in hand, and we feel that there are players in this squad who understand, and want to play, a very ‘Scarlet’ brand of rugby. Our aim is to impose our game plan and shape of attack on the opposition so that we can play with width and excitement. Team spirit within this group of players has been excellent, and their determination and effort has never been in question. We are all looking forward to Wednesday night.”
Here’s both U16 West and East teams to face one another Wednesday evening 27th of February, KO 19:15.
