A message from Sion
Welcome back to Stadiwm Zip World, Parc Eirias – the home of RGC and North Wales Rugby.
After a good start to the pre-season build-up and league, it’s exciting to be back at Stadiwm Zip World with Principality Premiership action. Today we welcome Ebbw Vale RFC for what should be a very competitive match. Having lost to them twice in 2017/18, we have a lot to prove and I’m confident RGC will be looking to set the record right especially now that we return to the home of RGC and North Wales rugby.
Six teams have started the season off well with two wins out of two, Ebbw Vale RFC are one of those, so it places even more importance on today’s fixture.
The positive start to the season has been even more impressive due to having to work through several challenges. The upside is that we have players returning from injury over the next couple of weeks including Harri Evans and Aron Evans. Our young Development Squad have been presented with opportunities which the likes of Bailey Rae has taken. Also, the return of Afon Bagshaw to the squad and we will soon be adding the likes of Beau Williams and Karl Martin to the RGC ranks.
The future looks positive but, of course, the hard work starts here today.
This is a massively important year for RGC and the North Wales Rugby Development Region, every single opportunity on and off the field must be taken to ensure we continue to showcase the passion, enthusiasm and appetite for top class rugby in North Wales.
North Wales is on a journey and we must do absolutely everything possible to stay on course – nothing is impossible!
As well as receiving some fantastic support and warm welcomes from our North Wales community clubs including Clwb Rygbi Dinbych and Clwb Rygbi Rhuthun, I’m delighted and encouraged to see the rejuvenation of the RGC Supporters Club – there is a lot of positive energy being invested into the Club, so if you haven’t already signed up, I’d encourage you to go and find them and sign up today in the Heart Fanzone.
So here we go…let’s get behind the team today and make some noise.
Thank you all for your continued support.
Enjoy the match.
