The class of 2013 will take on Rhondda in a 10.30am kick off this morning, at St Helen's Rugby Ground, in the competition’s semi final.
The winners will play either Pontypridd or Cardiff in the final.
A spokeswoman for Swansea Schoolboys said: “The Dewar Shield is the oldest rugby union competition in the world and is eagerly contested every year by the under 15-year-old schoolboys from each region in Wales. This year Swansea Schoolboys have won all eight group matches and by winning all their matches in the second round against Cynon Valley, Carmarthen and Cardiff have guaranteed a home semi final tie.
“The final will be played at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on May 11. Please come along and support the boys in their quest to reach their dream venue. All are welcome.”
