To further Maesydderwen’s contribution to the success, the winning drop goal was scored by deputy head boy Iwan Evans. There are currently six of the squad studying at Ysgol Maesydderwen’s Sixth form, proving that these players have brains as well as brawn.
Ysgol Maesydderwen has always taken pride in their local rugby links with both Ystradgynlais and Abercraf RFC. Hopefully these young players will be inspired by this success and follow in the footsteps of former pupils and internationals like Adam Jones and Vernon Cooper.
The Maesydderwen players involved were:
Dominic Williams, Iwan Evans, Ethan Nichols, Patryk Kaminski, Joe Edwards, Callum Close, Jake Carroll, Elliott Myles, Jack Jenkins, Oliver Davies, Michael Mayes and Lewis Turner.
