A former Rydal Penrhos pupil and Rugby Academy graduate achieved another impressive accolade as part of his starring role for RGC 1404 in their recent victory over Bedwas.
Efan Jones, who left the school in 2016, was the star of the show for Mark Jones’ side and turned in a virtuoso display to help himself to a hat-trick in front of the passionate home support at Stadiwm Zip World.
There was further cause for celebration as the former Wales U18 international was crowned winner of the Principality Premiership Try of the Week as a result of his remarkable contribution to the success.
Jones was shortlisted for the honour for his sensational solo score and received enough votes to walk away with the honour.
This is the second time this season that Jones has scooped the distinction, and he has enjoyed a fantastic top-flight campaign so far as he enjoys a more prominent role within the squad following the departure of Alex Schwartz to Cornish Pirates
Jones is another successful prospect that has come through the Rydal Penrhos Rugby Academy, which is run in partnership with RGC and the Welsh Rugby Union.
Under the sensational coaching offered at the school at as part of the Gogs’ programme, the scheme has produced a wealth of internationals, RGC senior squad members and others who are plying their trade professionally at prestigious clubs across the country.
