The young Welsh team topples the best team of New Zealand. This is definitely one of the remarkable achievements of the first college team of Wales.
They have made a huge achievement by defeating one of the rugby schools that are well established in the world. Here we are talking about the U18s team called Coleg y Cymoedd who has made a win of 44-8 over the Hamilton Boys’ High School rugby team. Known as the alma mater of Warren Gatland, the Welsh coach, it is definitely a win that is substantial.
For those who witnessed the match, the Wales team puts on a unique style which helped them win the match that was held in the Pontypridd’s Sardis grounds. The team has not only made this win, but they have also managed to win over Coleg Sir Gar in the final match of the Welsh Colleges Cup. The win was in a more equitable match where the score had been 44-24. It was held at the Principality stadium.
The win was a well timed end to the season for this college team. The team has Clive Jones as their coach. What cannot be ignored is the scale of the win of the college team over Hamilton Boys HS. The Kiwi school is known to have a line up of talented players. This team even won the Sanix World Rugby Youth International tournament in 2010, 2011 as well as 2014. The match was witnessed by the Wales forwards coach as well as the Wales under 20s team coach. They have definitely been impressed by what they saw. It remains to be seen how the team would perform in the season coming up. The team members who were responsible for the win will definitely have a lot of offers coming up and how they can sustain and build on their talent.
