Sam Jones wins Principality Premiership Try of the Week for second time

A former Rugby Academy star at Rydal Penrhos has won another try-scoring award to continue his exceptional start to the season.

Sam Jones, who left the school in 2015, recorded the Principality Premiership Try of the Week for the second time during the initial stages of the campaign thanks to his score against Pontypridd.

This is the second time that the 21-year-old has scooped the award so far this term, and his latest success makes it three such awards already for both RGC and ex-Rydal Penrhos pupils after Efan Jones also picked up the accolade for his opening day score against Neath.

Jones has made a hugely impressive return from injury so far this term and has emerged as one of the key contributors for Mark Jones’ side during what has been another encouraging opening to the top-flight campaign.

He managed to secure the honour thanks to his blistering try during their outstanding victory at Pontypridd, where he displayed his trademark pace to surge past the home rearguard before touching down.

Jones is one of a large number of Rugby Academy graduates within the RGC set-up, with plenty of other plying their trade at his profile professional and semi-professional clubs across the country.

Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “This is fantastic news and is sure to give Sam another huge confidence boost as he continues to enhance his growing reputation as one of the brightest young talents in the country following a frustrating time with injuries last season.”
