Rugby: Trio achieve notable success at high-profile events

A group of Rugby stars at Rydal Penrhos achieved success at a series of events last weekend.

The trio were involved with representative and regional clubs and managed to come away with silverware after once again impressing on the big stage.

Head Boy and RGC U18 star Adam Sabri was part of the Warriors 7s squad that emerged victorious from the high-profile Hartpury Sevens tournament, with the pacey back turning in a number of eye-catching efforts to lead his side to the title.

The 18-year-old was in sensational form throughout the tournament which was rewarded with a plethora of tries, with the Warriors overcoming Navy 21-17 in a thrilling final to secure the crown.

There was further success in the form of Lower Sixth pupil Harry Dean, who was part of the Chester side that won the Cheshire Cup after a convincing win over Caldy.

The boarding pupil continued his superb campaign with another committed and dominant display, which contributed significantly to their triumph.

Rydal Penrhos almost secured a notable treble after ex-RGC U18 forward Euan Humphries turned out for Colwyn Bay’s senior side, who were on the wrong end of a narrow final defeat to Caernarfon in-front of a packed Parc Eirias crowd.

Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “These exit routes are crucial to our young athletes in terms of their life-long participation.

“It has been a thriving year for the sports department here at Rydal Penrhos in a multitude of areas, and all examples of club links and representative opportunities have been working exceptionally well.”
