Rugby Academy scoops WRU Elite Colleges League Trophy

Gower College Swansea’s Rugby Academy has scooped the WRU Elite Colleges League Trophy, having won all but three games this year.

“This win is an excellent achievement for the team and was one of the targets we set ourselves at the start of the season,” says lecturer Dan Cluroe.

The Academy’s successful year has been topped off with seven of their 1st XV players representing the Ospreys U18’s in the final of the regional age grade competition, where they beat the Cardiff Blues convincingly.

Two players, Matthew Aubrey and Mitchell Walsh, have also been selected for the Wales U18 squad and will start against France at scrum half this coming Sunday in Marcoussis.

“The team have played incredibly well throughout the season,” adds Dan. “It’s difficult to pick just one highlight but beating our local rivals Neath three times would definitely be up there. We are really keen to continue this rich vein of form into the next few weeks - when we play in two Welsh 7’s tournaments - and beyond that, when we end our season with the Rosslyn Park National School 7’s, which is the largest 7’s tournament in the world.”
