ANOTHER member of RGC’s squad has decided to move across the border in favour of full-time rugby.

Talented forward George Roberts has secured a move to Doncaster Knights after a standout campaign for the Gogs’ in the Indigo Group Premiership.

The hooker will link up with fly-half Billy McBryde, who also made the same switch to the RFU Championship side last month.

Roberts came through the RGC Academy ranks at Coleg Llandrillo and has also represented Wrexham Rugby Club before an outstanding rise to prominence.

The 22-year-old has come of age over the last two seasons, which has seen him become a pivotal member of the Gogs’ senior set-up and emerge as the region’s best player at the position.

Speaking to the RGC website, coach Josh Leach said: “George's departure brings a mix of feelings. As an Academy and for us as coaches it's great that we have helped another player gain a professional contract, but George has been a part of the environment for some time now and was a big part of the Senior team last season, so there is no doubt he will be missed.

“We wish George all the best with his move to England and we are in no doubt he will go on to make his mark for Doncaster Knights.

"As in all cases, when a player moves on it opens up further opportunities for others, we have some talented young hookers in our pathway at the moment and this opportunity only presents greater exposure for them."

RGC have yet to make any new signings this summer, with plenty of uncertainty surrounding the current situation and the Welsh Rugby Union’s lack of commitment to a starting date for next season.
