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.
Warrior Stuart Brooks will represent the club at Twickenham next weekend as he battles for the honour of carrying the coveted Aviva Premiership Rugby trophy onto the pitch ahead of the final between Leicester Tigers and Northampton Saints.
There has been a flurry of activity taking place at Sixways off-the-field over the last two weeks as the stadium pitch has undergone major renovation in preparation for the 2013/2014 Aviva Premiership campaign.
