Penarth u16 Youth rugby shine in France

David Baker & Company supported the Penarth u16 rugby team on their recent tour to France, where they performed admirably and came third! Despite feeling that they did enough to win the tournament, they came up just short but scored 25 tries and conceded only 2. They were unlucky losers, 6-3 in the semi-final, with close refereeing decisions going against them. The final was contested by two local French teams but the boys acquitted themselves well. The tour was thoroughly enjoyed and was a great learning experience for the players involved. Aled Rees was also voted the best number 9 in the tournament in the coaches vote.

To finish the season, the team beat rivals Cowbridge 33-29 last Sunday in their final game!
