Rugby Academy

The Cowbridge Comprehensive Rugby Academy entertained Bridgend College in the first round of fixtures in the National WRU College League Cup Competition, with Cowbridge taking the spoils with a 40 – 8 victory.

There were some notable performances from Harry Dobbs, Eddies Drake, Owain Thomas-Jenkins and Owain Ellis, the latter coming off in the second half with a fractured thumb!With several Year 12 boys selected for this tough physical encounter it was really pleasing to see Cai Evans play yet another vital role in the victory with a 100% kicking statistic.

The Academy travel north up the A470 on Wednesday 7th October to play Coleg Y Cymoedd. Kick off has been arranged for 2.30pm. Asked to comment Director of Rugby Dai Griffith said “it was great to get a good start to the competition but with respect to Bridgend they don’t offer the same physical test as Cymoedd will”, he went on to say “we have a great squad of boys who work hard for each other so I am expecting a good game of rugby next week.”
