The two regional academy sides are set to clash at Queensway in Wrexham, with kick-off at 11.30am.
For South Wales, in contrast, this will be only their third game of the season, and they will be looking to build on their win over win against a Hemel and Milton Keynes Select last week.
“After last Sunday’s game against Hemel and Milton Keynes select, we decided that we needed to take the boys away to see how other academies work and where they could end up if they keep working hard, as they will see at Widnes with ex South Wales academy players,” he said.
“It will be a long day as we won’t get back until about 9-10pm but it’ll be worth it. All 29 players in our training squad will be going whether playing in the match against North Wales or not so they can get the full experience we’d like to offer them.
“We are looking forward to playing against North Wales. We’ve heard a lot of positive comments regarding their squad and their progress this season.”
The game will be the first match between the academies at junior level for nine years. In 2006, the North were victorious at under-15 level at the Brewery Field in Bridgend.
“It’s a free weekend for us so we’re honoured to be hosting the South Wales squad,” he said.
“I anticipate it to be a high intensity workout.”
