Prostate Cymru Allstars Season Success

The Prostate Cymru Allstars have completed a busy rugby sevens season, having competed in seven competitions over three months. The invitational rugby sevens team from South Wales played in the tournaments to raise awareness of prostate issues and support the charity.

The team are managed by Michael Guy and captained by Ben Jones and Morgan Griffiths who share the captaincy. The squad includes players from across South Wales such as Josh Davies, Tom Davies, Josh Dixon, Jack Giles, Luke Griffiths, Jamie John, Mikey Kennedy, Connor Law, Chris Leyshon, Leon McNally, Samuel Palmer, Gareth Rees and Connor Tantum.

Over the summer the team played in the following tournaments: Hartpury 7s, Trimsaran 7s, Old Pens 7s, Sundogs 7s, Heart of Wales 7s, Chunky 7s and Penallta 7s. The team were kindly sponsored by a number of local businesses throughout their campaign including A&L Mechanical Installations, Browne & Browne Financial Advisers, Ryan Giles Plastering Services, Donne & Dusted Cleaning Services, Rhino Teamwear, Fiture Rugby, Davies Waste, Appliance Care Engineers and Phillips Cleaning Services.

The team started their season well as semi-finalists at Hartpury 7s before some difficult competitions at Trimsaran and Old Pens 7s. The squad picked themselves up to become finalists at Sundog 7s ahead of winning both the Heart of Wales 7s in Llanidloes and Chunky 7s in Ystalyfera. The team finished their season on a high at Penallta 7s as semi-finalists.

In addition to raising awareness at the sevens tournaments, the players have been fundraising for Prostate Cymru, the leading prostate health charity in Wales supporting men with benign prostate disease and prostate cancer. Several of the players braved the cold on Christmas Day 2018 to take a dip in the sea as part of Porthcawl Christmas Morning Swim and earlier this year the team organised a ladies afternoon at Kenfig Hill RFC in Bridgend to raise funds for the charity.
