Academy Returns

Both the RGC Under 16 & 18 squads started back at Stadiwm Zip World this week as they began their preparation for the 1st round of Regional Age-Grade Competition fixtures which take place in September. For both squads it was both an opportunity for players and parents to be introduced to their teams coaching and support staff and for the players to undertake some physical testing prior to when the training really begins next week. 

The 16s Coaching-set-up is exactly the same as last year with Gav Hodgkinson as Head Coach, whereas for the 18s there is a new Head Coach in the person of RGC player Andrew Williams, an appointment which RGC Academy Manager Josh Leach believes will be of huge benefit to the squad, -  ' As well as having played for RGC since their entry into the National Leagues, Andrew is also the Head of Rugby at Llandrillo and thus works already with the vast majority of the Under 18s squad. The act that he will therefore have so much contact time with players throughout the season will I am sure be a real positive both for Llandrillo and RGC.'
