RGC Players at St David's College


St David’s College has recently welcomed two exceptionally talented young rugby stars to the Sixth Form, much to the delight of the PE department and Cader House.


Owain Evans (pictured on the left) and Robert Muirhead (pictured on the rigth) both play for RGC (Rygbi Gogledd Cymru) the regional team for the North Wales Rugby Development Region.


Owain, who is forwards captain for the 1stXV, has been playing rugby since the age of six, and as well as playing for SDC and RGC, also plays for Caernarfon Rugby Club.


Being six-foot-four in height ensures he has a commanding presence on the rugby field.


Owain’s aspirations are high, he dreams of playing for Wales one day and if that fails becoming a physiotherapist or pursuing a career in sports science.


He has joined the school after gaining a raft of A* and A grades in his GCSE’s and is studying maths, PE, and biology A ‘levels.


He joined the school after getting to know our Head of PE Dan Lycett, who is also a forwards coach with RGC.

“Through Mr Lycett I started training with the school’s 1stXV and so got to know a lot of the boys,” said a smiling Owain.


“I enjoyed it and thought it would be a great opportunity to join the school. I was also attracted by the small class sizes, as my school in Llangefni there would be 32 in a class, here there’s around nine.”


Owain has settled in very well and is enjoying both his rugby and lessons.


“I’m loving it, and the teachers are great. There’s a great rapport between the pupils and teachers which you don’t normally get in schools.”


When asked who his favourite rugby player was, Owain answered without taking a beat-the Welsh Captain Alun Wyn Jones.


“He’s a warrior and is relentless. He hits ruck after ruck and shouts orders to all the players, he’s a born leader and just never stops.”
