Rydal Penrhos U16 Rugby 7s squad will be testing their skills at one of the most prestigious tournaments of the season this week.

The group departs for the Rosslyn Park 7s tournament in London on Monday, March 19, which is widely regarded as the most competitive competition on the schools’ circuit.
