The final weekend of the Anglo-Welsh Cup pool stages sees all four Welsh regions in action with plenty of young talent on display once again.

The semi-finals are out of reach for the four clubs this time but there is still pride and places to fight for ahead of the return of the Guinness PRO14.

Scarlets v Sale Sharks

The Scarlets recent performances sees them form the bulk of the Wales team to face Scotland and allows winger Jac Price to make his club debut on Friday night.

Berian Watkins and Oli Ryland could also get their first run outs from the bench at the Parc y Scarlets against the Sharks who are also out.

Dragons v Worcester Warriors

Scrum-half Charlie Davies will make his 50th appearance for the Dragons against Worcester Warriors on Friday night as the hosts make eight changes.

Ashton Hewitt returns to the starting XV while there’s one change in the second row as Joe Davies replaces Max Williams who has been called into the Wales U20s squad.

Captain Harri Keddie moves to number eight with Aaron Wainwright and James Benjamin alongside him in the back row.

Ospreys v Bath Rugby

Dewi Cross makes his first Ospreys start on the wing against Bath Rugby with Dafydd Howells at full-back and the experienced pair of Kieron Fonotia and James Hook in the centres.

Luke Price leads the side at fly-half with Guy Mercer set to face his former club alongside Will Jones and Sam Cross in the back row.

Joe Gatt will make his club debut if he comes off the bench.

Cardiff Blues v London Irish

Olly Robinson is one of a number of senior players recalled to the Cardiff Blues line-up with the flanker set to captain the side.

Robinson will have internationals Josh Turnbull and Seb Davies alongside him in the back row while on-loan Ryan Edwards is set for his first start on the wing.
