Rugby: Another Principality Premiership Try of the Week Award for RGC star Sam

A Rugby Academy graduate picked up another award as part of his try-scoring exploits with RGC.

Sam Jones, who left Rydal Penrhos in 2015, dotted over four times in the Gogs’ recent victory at Cross Keys to continue what has been a very impressive season to date.

The pacey winger was nominated for the Principality Premiership Try of the Week Award, and after a flurry of votes, he was given the title once again.

Jones has won this particular distinction multiple times throughout the campaign to further enhance his growing reputation as one of the most exciting backs to watch in the domestic game, and he is another outstanding product of the school’s Rugby Academy.

The programme has produced a host of senior squad members for RGC, with the likes of Sean Lonsdale and Tom Williams making an impact on the national stage at Exeter Chiefs and Ospreys.

It has also secured some international recognition, with Efan Jones and Dan Owen picking up Welsh U18 caps during their time at Rydal Penrhos.

Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “We are always proud to see the aspiring athletes that have come through Rydal Penrhos achieving success once they depart, and Sam has gone from strength-to-strength with RGC this season following a frustrating time with injuries.

“He is become a key member of their squad at Stadiwm Zip World and there is no doubt that Sam has a massive future in the game given the scope he has for further improvement.”
