Caldy’s second and final pre-season match sees them travel across the Welsh Border to face RGC 1404 in a match that has been switched to a Friday evening fixture and will now be played at Ruthin Rugby Club with an entrance fee of £10 for adults. Under sixteens free.
Caldy and RGC have had a good relationship over a number of years, with players having played for both sides.
The Welsh side were founded just 11 years ago and have moved up to the second tier of the WRU system and have been a grassroots club for a number of high quality players.
The club's former head coach was former Wales International wing Mark Jones who has previously been head coach at Rotherham Titans. Jones left the club in May to be replaced by former Bridgend head coach Matt Silva. Silva has been a coach for almost two decades and upon taking the role he told BBC Wales:-
“Taking on this role is a big but very exciting challenge and I can't wait to get started”
RGC will be looking to use the game to give some of their impressive youth players a run out in the first team and will be an opportunity to see the stars of the future for Welsh Rugby.
As with the Birmingham Moseley game the club will not be providing supporters' coaches for the trip to North Wales. For those wanting to make the trip their own way the postcode for Ruthin Rugby Club is LL15 2AA.
The town of Ruthin doesn’t have a railway station and transport for Wales says the best way to get to Ruthin is a train to Wrexham Central and the X51 bus which will take you to Ruthin Town Hall. The rugby club is a four minute taxi ride away.
