Rugby star Efan takes part in Cartrefi Conwy community initiative
10th November 2015

Rydal Penrhos pupil and RGC rugby star Efan Jones recently took part in a community initiative at a Llandudno estate.

The 17-year-old scrum half was joined by other members of the Colwyn Bay-based side in a Big Bulb Plant, which was held at Tre Cwm on Wednesday, October 28.

More than 6,000 spring bulbs were planted across three areas of the estate during the event, which was organised by Cartrefi Conwy.

Efan is a current Wales U18 and U20 international and has risen up the ranks at RGC thanks to their Rugby Partnership with Rydal Penrhos, scoring his first try for the Gogs last month in their win over Newcastle Emlyn.

Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “Efan has been a model pupil since his time at the school and this in reflected in him giving up his own time to help a community cause.

“It is fantastic that both Rydal Penrhos and RGC are so involved in community projects such as this, which enables players that are role models to do some good for other people.

“The sky is the limit in terms of his ability on the rugby field, which has come on leaps and bounds in recent months, and his work off the field is also a tremendous experience that will stand him in good stead when he leaves the academy.”
