Maredydd - 100 Not Out

RGC’s Captain Maredydd Francis reaches 100 appearances when he leads out the side against Bridgend Ravens on Saturday.

The 23 year old came through the Academy ranks and has been part of the rise from Division 1 East, Championship and of course the Principality Premiership. 

Last season he made history as he lifted the WRU National Cup at the Principality Stadium

“I can’t believe it is 100 appearances, and when you take a step back and look back it is amazing to remember so many high points – of course the cup win stands out, but I look back at a game away at Blackwood as well.  I had been out injured and it was my first game back. “

“We have come such a long way from Division 1 East, and all that we have achieved has been a result of hard work from all involved on and off the field.  That year in Division 1 East was my first season of senior rugby, and I learnt a huge amount from the players around me like Kelvin Davies and Bryn Williams”

“As I said I have plenty of highlights but also looking forward to creating a few more this season”

In this week’s match programme some players and coaches give their thoughts on Maredydd reaching the 100 appearance mark. Don’t forget to pick up a copy.
