International call for Griffin

Congratulations to Archie Griffin (C3 L6) who has been included in the Wales squad for Friday’s opening match of the U18 International Series against hosts South Africa Schools.

On Wednesday, the squad headed to Cape Town for a training session against Western Province U19s. “We’re trying to make the most of being out here,” head coach Chris Horsman told wru.co.uk. “It’s been really interesting. It’s a very different cultural experience for the players: the whole landscape of the country and being in places like Stellenbosch is great for them.”

Friday’s game, which will be held at the Boland Landbou Agricultural School near Paarl, is the first of three fixtures Wales will play over the coming nine days. They will take on England at Bishops on Tuesday, followed by a meeting with France in Cape Town four days later.
