Rugby League: Will gears up for Four Nations tilt with Welsh Students squad

A Rugby League star at Rydal Penrhos is aiming for further national success at a high-profile tournament next week.

Will Lynch, a Year 13 pupil at the school, will travel to Scotland as part of the Welsh students squad, who are aiming for glory at the annual Student Four Nations Championship.

The Prefect and sports scholar earned his place in the squad after impressing considerably during a trial game, in addition to subsequent training sessions as part of the group.

Wales will compete against other sides from Great Britain in a round-robin environment in the hope of continuing their excellent recent run of results to date.

Will has enjoyed a glittering young career to date and was recently part of the Welsh U19 Rugby League squad that achieved a superb third-placed finish at the European Youth Championships in Serbia.

He played a significant part in the side’s success, scoring tries against Ukraine and the hosts.

The Upper Sixth Former has experience with one of the best amateur sides in Great Britain – Leigh Miners Rangers Academy – a set up that has produced numerous professional and international players over the years.

Will also received a U16 scholarship at Salford City Red Devils and has represented RGC U16s within the Rugby Union youth system.

Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “Will has worked immensely hard to secure a place in the squad, and everyone at Rydal Penrhos wishes him the very best of luck with the Welsh students' squad at the Four Nations.”
