5.4.2017 New venues confirmed for day one of International U18 Series

Day One of the 2017 U18 International Series will now be held at Taffs Well RFC and the BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park, the Welsh Rugby Union can confirm.
The first round of the three-day series was due to take place at Sardis Road this Saturday. However, due to recent issues surrounding the playing surface, it has been agreed with Pontypridd RFC that it would be played elsewhere in order to ensure testing on the surface is as thorough as possible.
"We completely respect Pontypridd's diligence regarding the matter and appreciate their co-operation in moving the fixtures for Day One," said Gethin Watts, Age Grade Manager of the Welsh Rugby Union. "It's a pity we won't be taking the series to Pontypridd this year, but we're now looking forward to hosting three exciting games at nearby Taffs Well and the BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park."
On Saturday, Taffs Well RFC will host the first match of the competition between England and Canada (kick-off 14:30), with the action then moving to the BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park for Ireland v Italy (18:00) and Wales v Scotland (20:05).
Other venues hosting matches later this month are Parc y Scarlets in Llanelli and Newport Gwent Dragons' training base, the CCB Centre for Sporting Excellence in Ystrad Mynach. Training bases for the visiting nations include Whitchurch High School and Cardiff International Sports Stadium (Ireland and Scotland respectively), Bonymaen RFC and Swansea University (Italy and England) and the National Centre of Excellence (Canada).
Wales U18 warmed up for the series with a 29-19 victory against their English counterparts at Eugene Cross Park in Ebbw Vale recently, with head coach Geraint Lewis's team looking to continue that form this Saturday night in Cardiff.
