A Rugby Academy star at Rydal Penrhos will look to help RGC U18s to further success this weekend.

Henry Maitland-Davies, an Upper Sixth Form pupil at the school, has been named in the starting XV for the Gogs’ clash with Bangor Rugby Club on Friday, February 9.

The scrum-half has made a welcome return from injury in recent weeks, which has coincided with two senior squad call-ups and RGC producing a series of fine efforts in their WRU Regional Age Grade contests.

A strong effort saw them come away with a hard-fought 17-10 win over Dragons Academy and this was swiftly followed by a standout 25-15 success against Cardiff Blues.

The young Gogs were unable to make it three wins in succession last weekend as they were beaten 41-27 at Cardiff Blues North, but they will be back on home soil this weekend in the hope of getting back to winning ways.

Maitland-Davies is a member of the Rydal Penrhos Rugby Academy which is run in partnership with RGC and the Welsh Rugby Union, which has seen a large number of prospects go on to achieve international and senior recognition with the Gogs and high-profile clubs across the country.

Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “Henry has been a mainstay of the RGC youth set-up for a number of seasons now, which is a testament to his talent and the way he is developing as part of our Academy partnership.

“Everyone at Rydal Penrhos wishes Henry and RGC the very best of luck this weekend as they look to make it three wins from their last four games.”
