Rugby Academy graduate Dan Owen on road to recovery after serious knee operation

A former pupil and Rugby Academy graduate at Rydal Penrhos is on the road to recovery after undergoing surgery to repair a serious knee injury.

Dan Owen, who left the school in 2017, suffered an Anterior Cruciate Ligament affliction earlier this season for the Principality Premiership side, ending his 2019/20 campaign earlier than expected after a positive start to the campaign.

Owen came through the school’s Academy system and made his first team debut for RGC during his final year as a pupil.

His sensational form also saw him earn a call-up to the Wales U18 international squad, where he turned in two exceptional displays to further enhance his reputation as one of the brightest young prospects anywhere in the country.

The flanker signed a new deal with Mark Jones’ men and is continuing his studies at the University of Aberystwyth.

Owen’s operation “went really well” and the COBRA youth product is expected back in training for their upcoming pre-season regime ahead of the new campaign.

Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “Dan is one of the massive success stories from our Rugby Academy programme and we are thrilled that he is now on the mend after a serious injury hampered his progress.

“He is an enormously talented individual who is extremely well thought-of within the domestic scene, and hopefully Dan can hit the ground running this summer and go on to bigger and better things next season.”
