Christ College Lower Sixth pupils Alex Ryan and James Newey have been training with the Bristol Academy U18’s throughout the Michealmas term leading up to fixtures against Exeter Chiefs, Bath and Saracens over the Christmas holidays.
Alex started the games against Exeter and Bath at Blindside Flanker and was selected at Openside Flanker for the match versus Saracens in which he scored a try. James has started all three games at Inside Centre, scoring on his debut against Exeter.
These fixtures form part of the RFU Academy structure with teams from all the Aviva Premiership sides competing in Northern and Southern Leagues. Both boys have done tremendously well to get selected for Bristol after impressing at trial days and in training.
Alex and James have impressed in all three fixtures so far and will be hoping to be involved in the upcoming fixtures against Wasps, London Irish and Harlequins. Head of Christ College, Mrs Emma Taylor said, “Alex and James have stood out as clear talent right from the word go but have flourished under the expert coaching of our Director of Rugby, Jonathon Goodridge and 1st XV coach, ex-Irish Rugby International, Gary Halpin. It is a great achievement to be selected for such a strong squad and they are definitely ones to watch for the future.”
