Rugby: Sean Hughes performs well for RGC U16s in Ospreys West clash

A Rydal Penrhos pupil turned in another good display as part of the RGC U16 side that took on Ospreys West last weekend.

Sean Hughes, a Year 11 pupil at the school, put in another encouraging showing for the young Gogs in what was only his third start since joining the programme.

The pacey winger was a constant threat anytime he got the ball against a strong South Walian outfit, who secured a 45-17 triumph in Sunday’s clash at Parc Eirias.

Dillon Caulfield, Dan Hiscoks and Dyfan Ceredig all crossed the line twice, with Steffan Cox bringing the try count to seven.

Declan Thomas with five conversions sealed victory for the side played the final 10 minutes against 13 men, after two yellow cards were awarded to the North Wales side for repeated infringements.

The 15-year-old Holywell native, who is expected to play a key role in Rydal Penrhos 7s campaign this term, will look to make a further impact next month during the next set of fixtures.

Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “Sean gave another very good account of himself and we are delighted with his progress so far.

“He is still learning the game and experiences like this with RGC will do his development the world of good, and if he continues to progress at his current rate then he will have a very bright future in the game.”
