THE Rhyl and District Rugby Club under-10s had the privilege to be the guards of honour for a recent game between the North Wales and Cheshire police forces.

On a cold and windy night, the under-10s braved it up to support the North Wales Police (NWP) team by creating a tunnel of players all waving flags and cheering loudly in support of NWP as both teams made their way through the colourful display of red and white flags entering the field.

The game was played in extremely windy conditions at Rhyl’s Tynewydd Fields on Wednesday, February 16.

It turned into a one-sided affair, with both sides playing a close-quarter game as passing proved virtually impossible. NWP won by a score of 53-7.

It was also an opportunity for the under-10s to show off their newly donated rugby tops and training jackets.

Brian Hill, from Rhyl Rugby Club, said: “All the coaches, children and Rhyl Rugby Club would like to thank Claire Anwyl from Anwyl Thoughtful Homes, Seth Pearce from JH Services and Leigh Hymus-Gant from Sovereign Funeral Services for their very kind and much-appreciated donations.

“It is donations like these that help support the Rhyl Rugby Club network training from all ages from four to 17, and helping to make Rhyl Rugby Club one of the biggest clubs in the North Wales area, with over 300 registered children so far.”
