Age Grade Round-Up: Wins for both under-16 North and South sides

1st February 2018

The second block of WRU's under-16s Age Grade Championship got off underway on Wednesday, as Cardiff Blues North and Cardiff Blues South's battle for top spot continues.

Cardiff Blues South lead the pack, with North hot on their heels, as both sides picked up maximum points in the first block of games earlier in the season, but North do have a game in-hand over their inter-regional rivals.

Cardiff Blues North got their campaign back underway with a trip to Parc y Scarlets to take on Scarlets East. 

The visitors ran in an impressive five tries away from home, including a double from wing Cavan Davies, as they secured a 31-0 victory.

Josh Phillips racked up a personal tally of nine points, following a try and two conversions, while Corben Evans and Mitchell Jones also crossed the whitewash. The North's resolute defence also stopped the hosts from picking up any points on the scoreboard.

Cardiff Blues South also picked up a bonus point victory as they welcomed Ospreys West to Cardiff Arms Park.

Tries from Morgan Oliver, Rhys Gentles and Mason Grady put the home side in a commanding position heading into the interval.

Oliver's second of the evening saw the hosts seal a bonus point, with Oliver James crossing for his side's fifth try of the game.

Ospreys West attempted a comeback later in the game, but it was not enough as South ensured a perfect start for Cardiff Blues under-16 sides.
