This Tuesday evening (15th April), RGC Under 16s face their Connaught counterparts in a training game on the 4g pitch at Eirias Parc. For both teams the game is designed to help prepare themselves for fixtures later in the week. Connaught will be off across the border to play Sale while RGC will be playing on Friday afternoon the Scotland Under 16 Green team on the main pitch at Eirias.( KO 2pm). This will be the second consecutive year that RGC 16s have faced Connaught and Head Coach, Gav Hodgkinson, is in no doubt as to the value of the exercise,
' Last years Connaught team were a very talented and physical side, (they were to go on and win the Irish inter-provincial Championship), and as such they were ideal opposition to play prior to our matches against the Scotland Under 16 teams. I have no doubt that this years team will be equally challenging opponents and the evening will allow us to fine tune our combinations prior to our matches over the Easter weekend.'
