The fledgling North Wales regional side has been re-christened RGC (Rygbi Gogledd Cymru) 1404 – 1404 is the year Welsh hero Owain Glyndwr was crowned Welsh Prince at Machynlleth
Glyndwr’s men went into battle under the golden dragon standard and the team will take to the field with that same golden Welsh dragon emblazoned on their chests.
These emotional and historic symbols have been revived to spearhead the RGC 1404 campaign to become a new and powerful force in the representative game.
The newly designed branding is launched today along with details of RGC 1404’s finalised fixture list which kicks off in mid-January 2010.
Ten fixtures have been confirmed for the team starting on Friday 15th January at 7.30pm when RGC 1404 take on a Leicester Tigers Development XV at their new home ground in Parc Eirias, Colwyn Bay. Other fixtures are still to be added to the schedule.
The team’s golden dragon standard will be raised above their new home base for the first fixture to be played by the relaunched side which is coached by former Wales dual code international and defence coach of the 2005 Wales Grand Slam side Clive Griffiths assisted by Jason Forster and Jon Aby.
