Worcester Warriors' stars of the future have a chance to test themselves when the Welsh U19 team meets a Sixways Academy side, on Monday, as part of their preparations for the Six Nations championship.
The match replaces the scheduled Academy match against Bath.
Twelve of the Warriors line-up that faced Newcastle Falcons in the A League encounter, last Monday, are aged 19 or below, so supporters can expect an intense and combative match that will provide a true measure of their progress this season.
Academy manager Andrew Stanley and assistant Gary Meechan are delighted that the Wales U19 management have requested the game.
"It's a great prestige fixture to have a national side want to come and play the Academy," Stan says. "We'll be doing our best to make sure it's a beneficial exercise for them and that, as a result, they'll want to play us again in the future."
The game kicks off at 7.30pm and will take place on the stadium pitch, weather-permitting, with Pitch 2 the alternative.
As usual the Clubhouse bar will be open for food and drink. There is no charge to watch the match.
The Aspire Academy is an Alternative Provision Free School providing a positive learning environment for pupils who are finding it difficult to focus on their learning in a mainstream school, and are therefore not able to achieve what they are capable of and are limiting their future life choices.
