CHANGE AHEAD

There is undoubtedly a lot of change ahead, some of which we know of, but there are also a lot of unknowns.

Whilst our national team continues to perform well in this year’s Autumn Series, there are a number of areas across our community, grassroots and club game that need addressing, to ensure we have a healthy and vibrant rugby future.

We do know of some changes the club game is facing in Wales, and these are things we can prepare for.

As of next season, the Premiership will be reduced to 12 teams, all of whom will be competing for the title of “best club in Wales”. We know that a minimum of four and maximum of five current Premiership clubs will be facing a future in the Championship, if they are relegated – and with relegation comes a significant change and shift in the financial models and funding that they will receive.

The Premiership also faces changes in the funding it will receive for the 2019/20 season and beyond – pressure will certainly be applied to clubs to generate sufficient funding to keep the club alive and performing, on and off the field. This will, in turn, apply huge pressure on the clubs, competition and quality of rugby on display.

The story so far in North Wales has been, on the whole, very positive, so it’s extremely important that we continue to move forward and positively develop the rugby product coming out of the North Wales Region.

As well as having a healthy rugby product and brand in the Premiership, one area that will require a lot of focus and energy will be our Academy and Age Grade pathway. We need to think BIG as a region, and we need a muscular performance model that rivals any Academy and player pathway in Wales.

Work is currently underway looking at the potential models for creating the best Academy and player pathway for future North Wales talent to be developed – ultimately, we want North Wales to be proudly developing and providing the next George North, playing in fixtures like Wales v South Africa, which I’m sure we will all be watching later on today.

First of all, our attention turns to RGC and our visitors Llanelli RFC, who travel up today looking to secure that all important away win.

Thank you all for your continued support.

Enjoy the match.

On the Mark

Welcome back for our 2nd home game in a row, and we hope Llanelli had a good journey north.

We had a good result last week, and we are taking one game at a time at the moment.  I wouldn’t read anything into the league tables at the moment, as everything can change with each game played.  Looking at it, we are 14 points ahead of the next side, but only 7 points off 2nd place.

Llanelli are playing some good rugby at the moment and will pose an attacking threat, so we will have to be disciplined in our defence.  The players will be asked to try and force some errors in their attacks, to create our own opportunities.  They play a similar game to us with that attacking mentality, so we shouldn’t be caught out in that sense. For us, we will need to be defence-minded from the whistle.

My coaching mentality is attack-minded, but when you look at the game, it is a 50/50 split of playing with and without the ball, so when you look at the Aberavon result last weekend, they played good rugby, but a lot of that rugby was created when they didn’t have the ball.

As for today, it is a chance for us to put a couple of wins back-to-back, which we haven’t done since the Neath and Swansea games at the start of the season.

The games come thick and fast, and we are in the same position as all teams, in terms of managing players with game time and injuries.  There is that perception that we have a huge squad depth, but as we have mentioned before, the bench has been a 6/2 split, as we have been light on backs.  The good thing is that we are in a healthier position upfront, so that has given us some selection consistency in the pack.

I must also credit the players’ commitment, who have taken days off and given up their time for the Friday games away, and that shouldn’t go unnoticed.  The effort from coaches, players and support staff is something we are all grateful for every week.

As always, enjoy the game.

100 Not Out

As this marks the 100th programme I have compiled, I thought it was an opportunity to look back at some of the match programmes since 2012.

We won Division 1 East in that 1st season with Celebration Saturday versus Rhydyfelin.

Our 1st home win in the Championship was against Ebbw Vale

Another 1st was our debut in the Principality Premiership

And as for most cover appearances….Rhodri Carlton-Jones and Afon Bagshaw hold the record.

Update from Performance Manager Josh Leach

For many, October half term is something of a break, but for RGC Academy it was full on. With the National Under 18s Skills and Conditioning combined event in Cardiff over the first weekend, the RGC Under 15s Provincial Festival on the Tuesday, Under 18s training and team building on the Wednesday and Thursday, and finishing with the Under 18s Regional Age Grade Super Series over the second weekend.

For the Under 18s, the week as a whole serves as a National Age Grade Player identification tool, leading to selection for the preliminary training camp on the 15th-17th December, for which I am pleased to announce that Matthew Buchanan (Bethesda RFC & RGC Academy), Oscar Crowe (Llandudno RFC & RGC Academy), Samuel Hughes (Pwllheli RFC & RGC Academy), Pedr Jones (Caernarfon RFC & RGC Academy), Owen Randell (Newtown RFC), Stefan Simm (Ruthin RFC & RGC Academy), Dafydd Williams (Bethesda RFC & RGC Academy), and Sam Earl-Jones (Colwyn Bay RFC & RGC Academy) have been invited. Considering that the players have been training hard since the beginning of July, the week also served as an opportunity to spend some time together away from Eirias enjoying each other’s company. Last year the players enjoyed an overnight stay at Surf Snowdonia, and this year the team spent the morning exposing a few phobias at Zip World Fforest.

On the rugby front, the week wasn’t as successful as it has been in the past, having achieved some good results at the Super Series the last couple of years. The team got off to a slow start against the Blues, with a disappointing performance leading to a 27-0 defeat. However, with a quick turnaround and 12 changes to the team, the second group to take the field put in a much stronger performance, bringing far more energy and physicality, pushing the Scarlets up until the final 5 minutes, when a missed try-scoring opportunity for RGC led to a score at the opposite end, putting the game to bed at 26-10. The final game was against the Welsh Exiles, and as the rain began to pour, RGC were punished for their errors, eventually losing 33-14. Despite the disappointing score-lines, the week will still have served as a useful experience for many, particularly the first year Under 18s, who should now better understand the speed of progression that we need to maintain throughout the season, in order to compete with the other regions. The next big test will come in January, when we begin the second Regional Age Grade block of games.

On a separate note, I think it’s fair to say the U15s RGC Provincial Festival was a success, with plenty of good rugby on show from all the teams, over six shortened games, and lots of positive feedback from Welsh Exile parents, who visited North Wales and Parc Eirias for the first time. The aim of the event is to get to know those players who are beginning to stand out at this age group within the North Wales pathway, and also to engage the Welsh Exiles with RGC and the development opportunities available in North Wales. A big thank you needs to go to SP Energy, Coleg Llandrillo and Coleg Cambria, who kindly supported the event, Gareth Davies and Dai Phillips for managing the Welsh Exiles team, and to all our RGC Age Grade Coaches, Coordinators and Staff, who made the day a very good one.

Player Profile

Evan Yardley – We Have Come A Long Way

The hooker has been a feature for RGC for 6 years, and this year was named co-captain alongside Tom Hughes.  Like many players in the squad, he has gained experience at the same speed as RGC coming through the leagues -

“We have come a long way, when you think about it; when I arrived, we were in the Championship, and that was for 3 seasons, before we gained that promotion to the Premiership.  We learnt a lot in those years, and we haven’t forgotten those hard games, especially travelling down on the day of the match.”

When he came into the team, he was one of the fresh-faced players competing for a starting place with the established Andy Baston.

“It was important we had some senior heads around; as a group, we were lucky to have Kelvin Davies and Bryn Williams, and all the lads respected them as leaders.  I learnt from them in that way, and now when I am in a position to make on-field decisions, I look for players like Tommy and Billy for that support.  When you have to take the a decision to kick for points or opt for touch, then you need to consider the thoughts of the backs and forwards. Those few seconds give you a chance not to regret a rash decision.”

The league is tight at the moment, and a win or a defeat can see you jump or drop a number of positions on a weekly basis, and RGC have had some ups and downs themselves -

“Results-wise, this season has been mixed, and all the players are harsh on themselves and their performances…which is a good thing.  We look to put things right for the next game, and come in to training knowing where we went wrong.  I think that makes a difference, as we don’t just turn up expecting Mark to tell us….it is our responsibility to look at improving.”

As for his spare time “off the field, I try and get home to my family as much as possible, and also play a bit of golf. Billy is the bandit of the team, when it comes to golf! I do watch rugby, but look at it with a more analytical view, so I guess I am not that sociable when I am watching.”

West

We are pleased to announce that Colwyn Bay Rugby club have set up a Mixed Ability Rugby Team, offering a senior inclusive format of the sport in North Wales

It is a slightly modified version of the standard contact game with a team comprised of both disabled and non-disabled players.  Players’ disabilities can range from learning difficulties to learning & physical disabilities.  The non-disabled players provide a crucial role, not only to provide a supportive environment, but also to help facilitate the structure of a regular game, and assist in both training and matches (as part of the team,) forming a cohesive player group

Why is Mixed Ability so important?

Team sport is well known for various benefits: healthy competition, respect, teamwork, physical fitness, strength and conditioning, self-awareness, character-building, confidence, self-respect, strategy, concentration, analytic skills and enjoyment, and rugby is especially good at enhancing some of those benefits.

Mixed Ability Rugby not only builds ability and self-belief on the pitch, but also develops social skills and confidence off it.  For those with disabilities, Mixed Ability Rugby often provides an invaluable chance to learn social skills, meet people and make new friends. The increased social skills can see players grow in confidence, helping improve their general lives, and often mean they are more prepared to ask questions, to pay for things independently, to be away from home and to travel around the country.

The post-game Clubhouse also makes for a relaxed setting where members of both teams and supporters can mingle easily and discuss the game; they can be discussing a referee decision, a particular tackle or who should play fly-half for Wales. Many people with disabilities will have difficulty with social engagement and, likewise, many non-disabled people may not have much interaction with disabled people - a rugby club provides the perfect setting to help improve the social skills of one group, whilst educating the other, and breaking down barriers.

Players

Under 18s who train with the team must only participate in skills and fitness drills; contact work can only be conducted if working with other under 18s.

We will also be recruiting for backroom staff, as well as offering courses and CPD to volunteers:

Today's Visitors

 

Llanelli currently sit 2nd bottom of the league, with 2 wins this season against Newport and Carmarthen. They also picked up a draw versus Cross Keys two weeks ago. Last weekend, they lost to 5th place Aberavon 54-29.

Last season, we faced each other 3 times, with RGC claiming 2 wins, and Llanelli 1 win.

It was an 11-try affair at Parc Y Scarlets, when we won 48-31, before Llanelli picked up the win in the other away clash in March, 24-6. In that game, the boot of Billy McBryde made 14 points for Llanelli.

We played each other once at home on 2nd September 2017, which turned out to be a nail-biter with Jacob Botica kicking a 78th-minute penalty to grab the 25-22 win.

Principality Premiership Round-Up

Finally, some good news for Neath, who claimed their first Principality Premiership win since 7th April, with their 30-12 home triumph over Bargoed.

After 14 successive defeats, 10 of them this season, newly-appointed skipper, Aaron Bramwell, led the way with the first of three tries, that fully justified the standing ovation his side received as they took the field.

Head coach Simon King had to draft in 12 players on permit in his matchday 23, following nine departures earlier in the week in the wake of the off-the-field financial difficulties. The emergency recruits, and those who stayed behind, were magnificent in efforts, from start to finish.

Bargoed proved they were in no mood to be sentimental and twice hit the front in the opening quarter, with tries from wings Duane Dyer and Ashley Norton, one of which Josh Prosser converted. But Bramwell's try, sandwiched in between those two scores, and the boot of left wing Callum Hall, were enough to edge the home side into a 14-12 interval lead.

From there on it was a case of converting pressure into points, and Neath finally managed to do that to earn four much-needed points. The 38-year-old former All Blacks centre, Regan King, glided through for a second try on 50 minutes, and then Hall raced over 18 minutes later to seal the victory and take his match haul to 20 points.

Cardiff skipper Joe Tomlinson was delighted with his side's 36-0 win at Bridgend - the seventh in a row to hoist the Blue & Blacks into third place, one point behind Pontypridd, and only eight off league leaders Merthyr.

Bridgend were their own worst enemies after holding Cardiff in the opening quarter, and allowed their visitors to build up a 15-0 interval lead, with four penalties from the boot of Gareth Thompson, and then a 55-metre howitzer from new signing, Ed Howley.

The Ravens also lost Chris John and Iestyn Merriman to yellow cards, to make life even more difficult. Second-half tries from Will Rees-Hole, Tom Daley and Morgan Allen took Cardiff further ahead, but that fourth try remained elusive.

League leaders Merthyr had their bonus point in the bag by half-time at The Wern, as they battered Cross Keys with eight tries in a 52-28 win, that took them even further ahead at the top of the table. Keys dug deep to pick up a losing bonus point, thanks to tries from Scott Evans, Scott Andrews, Rory Bodina and Rhydian Jenkins, all of which Jason Tovey converted, but they were very much second best to the treble-chasing champions.

Prop Nathan Trevett came up with a try in each half, and Lewis Williams, Jay Baker and Rhys Williams all crossed in a first-half that saw the home side race into a 28-14 lead. After the break, Adam Hoskins and Joe Williams also got in on the act, before the eighth try from outside half Richard Powell completed the rout, and took his match tally to 17 points with his sixth conversion.

In the battle for second place, Pontypridd just edged out Llandovery at Sardis Road. The home side won 18-16 thanks, largely, to tries from Huw Dowden and Alex Webber. Joe Powell got the Drovers' only try, and Jack Maynard kicked the rest of his side's points.

The Gwent derby at Eugene Cross Park saw the Ebbw Vale skipper end up on the losing side in his 200th game for the Steelmen, as Newport stole the show with a 27-20 triumph. Chay Smith, Matt O'Brien and Elliot Frewen scored tries for the visitors, and O'Brien ended with 17 points.

Swansea stunned Carmarthen Quins with tries from Tom Ham and Ben Cambriani in a 21-17 victory at St Helen's, while Jon Phillips, Stef Andrews and Ashton Evans were all at the double for Aberavon in their 54-29 victory over Llanelli. Scrum half scored a hat-trick of tries in RGC 1404’s 38-12 home win over Bedwas.
