Rugby: Outstanding win for improving squad
November 28, 2022

Rydal Penrhos’ ever-improving First XV rugby side continued their outstanding campaign with another impressive victory at Oswestry School.

The level of progress shown by Rydal Penrhos’ first XV rugby side throughout their current campaign has been nothing short of outstanding. It’s been a busy term of fixtures for the squad, who’ve acquitted themselves extremely well in the face of high-quality opposition across North Wales and the North West to continue their exceptional development.

Head of Rugby Ryan Kirby is working tirelessly with the team during coaching sessions and pupils are also benefitting from a superb conditioning programme within the school’s Fitness Suite, which was refurbished recently and provides a safe area to enhance physical performance.

Another tough test awaited Rydal Penrhos when they visited Oswestry School last weekend. However, a fine display of discipline rugby and teamwork enabled the squad to come through the challenge with flying colours en route to a convincing victory on their travels.

It was a collective effort in all phases as Rydal Penrhos secured a 37-7 triumph. The defensive organisation was a notable element of their overall performance, with plenty of attacking flair thrown in for good measure during a very worthwhile day at the office.

This was another confidence-boosting result. One that is sure to stand the team in good stead upon returning from their well-deserved Christmas break.

Players and staff will begin transitioning over to the Rugby 7s season during the spring. The school is also hosting its annual RPS U16s tournament, which has already received significant interest after official details were confirmed.

We would like to offer our congratulations to the senior rugby side on this victory and for their incredible commitment to improving since the academic year began.
