North and South Clash As Blues Under 16s Go Head to Head

29th September 2005

The Blues age grade teams face a challenging month with the under 16’s going head to head on Saturday at Brecon RFC.

On Sunday the Blues Under 18s play table topping Ospreys at Sardis Road in what could be a potential title decider. Later on in the month the Blues South host the Dragons at Rumney and the U18’s are on the road to Gwent in an effort to complete the double over their East Wales rivals this season.

Blues Regional Performance Manager Gafyn Cooper added, "this month is a hectic one on the playing front with four games in quick succession."

"The management staff are working hard in developing the team and unit skills within all the teams. We are determined to give the players at this level the best possible support. We analyse games using the gamebreaker package and really scrutinize the way we play and are constantly trying to improve the way we play."
