Ospreys in the Community are delighted to welcome Rhodri Davies to the team as our new Community Hub Officer at Llangatwg Comprehensive School.
Funded by Onlwyn Wind Farm and the Welsh Rugby Union, Rhodri will work across a cluster of schools and local clubs in the area to develop rugby interest and talent among boys and girls across the region to all ages and abilities.
Rhodri may already be known to those of you who have attended our rugby camps and club nights throughout the region, where he has delivered engaging activities as one of the WRUs Rugby Development apprentices.
The fomer Maesteg Comprehensive School student has plenty of experience both on and off the field to bring to his new position with OitC having played previously for Maesteg Quins and currently Nantyffyllon RFC. Rhodri has also taken part in some of our TACKLE sessions on a part time basis, working with disaffected young people, aged between 12-24, who are disconnected with school, employment or education helping them create a better future and giving them opportunities to gain qualifications and employability experience.
Speaking about his new role, Rhodri said: “It was great to be working as part of the TACKLE team on a part time basis, but I’m very excited to now have a full time role within the Ospreys in the Community team. I’m looking forward to the new challenge ahead and excelling in my new role.”
