RGC Back In Action

RGC head to Caldy on Friday night, as the preparations for the start of the Principality Premiership continues.

Both sides have had on field success since the last time they met a few years ago, with Caldy newly promoted to National League 1.

RGC played  a training match against Nant Conwy on Tuesday, and picked up a 40-12 win.

Friday will be another opportunity for Head Coach Mark Jones to blend the new recruits into the squad.

“We get a chance to put what we have practiced into a pressure situation of a game. We have been working on a few things and we can use them against Caldy.  We are not looking to peak fitness wise at the start of the season, but planning our fitness peak as they season progresses, so the games help with the conditioning hit.”

“It is a chance for all the players to get a run out, and our aim is to give the whole squad and opportunity for game-time over the 1st part of the season.  If players perform in training and show they are worthy of a starting place then it will happen for them.  Last season around 18 players cemented their place in the squad and the rest couldn’t break through, so this is a great opportunity for everyone to get a chance if they perform to the levels needed.

RGC took advantage of Warrington Wolves training facilities last weekend “It was a good chance to do something slightly different so we added some variety to training, including some challenges on the watt bikes.”

“With the Nant Conwy and Caldy run-outs we have a bit less training this week and a bit more on tactical nous.  I am sure we will have a few sore bodies as well”
