Bridgend Athletic RFC
The Athletic have rearranged the following Championship postponed fixtures.
Newbridge (Home) – Bridgend Ford Brewery Field -Wednesday 30th April – 7.15pm.
Narbeth (Home) – Sat 3rd May – 2.30pm – location TBA
Tondu (Away) –Thursday 8th May – 7.15pm
The club are also delighted with the 5 th Wales Cap and first start for Rhys Webb against France last Friday. He certainly contributed to the much higher tempo Wales played at in this fixture and got very good press reviews and pundits comments on his performance. We are sure it is the first of many starts for Rhys.
Rhys played at all age levels from Under 8 to Under 16 level for Bridgend Athletic and went on to win a number of Wales Under 18 Welsh caps from the club’s Youth team and helped them win both the Welsh Youth cup and Welsh Youth league. Also he has Under 20 level Welsh caps from his subsequent promotion to the Ravens then Ospreys squad for who he has now played on 100 occasions. He has shown great determination to recover from a number of serious injuries to force his way back into the Welsh squad this season.
Rhys is a great and very popular person off the field and is currently helping train the Athletic Youth team and attend games when his Ospreys commitments allow.
