Year 10 pupil Henry Morgan-Gervis enjoyed a successful season of rugby away from school as he was selected to represent South Powys in the Dewar Shield. The Dewar Shield is an U15 tournament with the best schoolboy players from Wales selected to represent different regions.
Henry was selected to play in all of the fixtures and helped South Powys reach the semi final of the competition, with wins against Swansea Valley, Neath, Bridgend, Cardiff A, Islwyn, Blaenau Gwent and RGC South.
Henry has a huge passion for Rugby and his selection in the South Powys team is testament to his great attitude and reward for all his work this season.
Higher up the School Will Trumper and Alex Bush were selected to play for Crawshays at Gemau Cymru Sevens on July 5th. The squad included a number of talented young sevens players from both Welsh based Schools and Exiles from over the border, selected by Crawshays and the Welsh Rugby Union to play for the Club.
They had team victories against the Welsh Exiles, Public School Wanderers and Welsh Academicals but lost by 5 tries to 3 in the final against a very strong and well organised Welsh Charitables RFC team.
We are proud of all our pupils achievements and must thank their parents for all those weekend journeys and their coaches for their dedication.
