Rydal Penrhos’ U18 Rugby Sevens side will go in search of national success at one of the world’s biggest competitions this week.
The senior group will depart for the Rosslyn Park 7s tournament on Wednesday, March 21, which is regarded as one of the most prestigious schools’ tournaments anywhere in the country.
The school will take part in Group G alongside Harrow School, Newport High School and Woodhouse Grove School, and they have been paired once again with Headmaster Simon Smith’s former school Haileybury for the second season in succession.
All ties are scheduled to take place on Thursday, March 22 in what is expected to be a hotly contested race to the elimination stages.
Rydal Penrhos will be sending a strong squad to the tournament, with RGC Academy pair Tomos Davies and Henry Maitland-Davies expected to feature heavily throughout the tournament.
Lancashire U18 squad member Kieron McNamara is another that is expected to stand out, while the pacey trio of Sean Hughes, Tawanda Harris and Elliot Wilkinson are sure to provide plenty of energy and try-scoring opportunities.
Cheshire selection Joseph Morrow is another huge talent to keep an eye on, with the likes of Will Lynch, Ewan Luke and Jack Jones also boasting plenty of big game experience to call upon.
Since its inception in 1939, the Rosslyn Park National Schools Sevens has evolved into the world's largest school rugby tournament with around 7,000 boys and girls aged 13-18 competing annually.
Rydal Penrhos U18 7s squad: William Lynch, Ewan Luke, Joshua Meyerratken, Tomos Davies, Kieron McNamara, Elliot Wilkinson, Sean Hughes, Alexander Benfield, Jack Jones, Joseph Morrow, Henry Davies, Tawanda Harris.
