Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Lon Las welcome the Ospreys

This week the pupils of Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Lon Las in Swansea hosted Sam Lewis and Rhodri Hughes for a special question and answer session.

As a part of the Ospreys Schools Programme participating Primary Schools across Bridgend, Neath Port Talbot and Swansea are visited by Ospreys players and get an opportunity to quiz them on life as an professional rugby player.

This week it was the turn of the Welsh language school in Llansamlet to host a Q&A session as they welcomed Sam Lewis and Rhodri Hughes to their school. The pupils had plenty of questions ready for the players as they asked all about how much they trained, what they ate to stay in shape and which team was their favourite to play against.

WRU/Ospreys Player Participation Officer for the Swansea District, Tom Sloane said on the visit:

"Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Lon Las have been really enthusiastic about participating in the Ospreys Schools programme. They are a school with a huge interest in rugby and sport in general and have been looking forward to meeting the players today. They had some great questions lined up forĀ  Sam and Rhodri and really enjoyed taking part in the Q&A".

Sam Lewis added:

"Coming to the schools to meet the pupils is always great fun and the players really enjoy these Q&A sessions. Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Lon Las came up with some great questions for us and it was nice to visit a school so enthusiastic about rugby. Hopefully the pupils enjoyed our visit and we will see them all down at the Liberty supporting us soon".

The Ospreys Schools Programme is delivered in partnership with RWE power renewables and with the support of the WRU, Sony UK Technology Centre, Network Rail and Save Britain Money.
