1404 v LEEDS MET - 7.30 WED 15TH SEPT

With their first team in the Premier British Universities and College Sports (BUCS) League and three other teams in the lower leagues of the competition, Leeds “Met” (Metropolitan University) will prove formidable opponents for RGC1404 on their first visit to North Wales.
This second game of the Varsity Series will kick off at 7.30pm on the 15th Sept. at Parc Eirias and follows RGC1404’s exciting win over Loughborough University last week.
Coached by former Scarlets and Wales outside half Colin Stephens this will be a preseason fixture for Leeds Met, as they build their challenge for this year’s Premier League BUCS title. Stephens’ formerly player and kicking coach with Leeds Carnegie is now Director of Rugby at Leeds Met.
Firmly established as one of the UK’s top 8 university rugby teams, strong links with Leeds Carnegie offer the students high performance coaching and a chance to represent Leeds Carnegie's A team and Development sides.
Clive Griffiths’ charges will provide formidable opponents tonight. Griffiths and his coaching team Darren Morris and Jon Aby are rapidly molding representative players from across the region into a structured team with its own off field camaraderie. Recent addition to the side Llandudno’s Kelvin Davies has been “Seren y Gêm” in the last two matches and Machynlleth’s Arwel Lloyd who empowers the second row are just two of the players who provided last week’s crowd with a high paced skillful and exciting win.
