Could You Play Regional Touch for West Wales?

The West Wales regional team is now a reality with the announcement of the first ever regional training camp on Sunday 27th January from 2 – 5pm in Parc y Scarlets Training Barn.  The Regional Coaches will be Gorllewin Gwyllt’s, Matt Adams and Wales Mens Over 30 player, Christen Jones.

Since this is a brand new regional format, the question is who is going to make up the team – so do you think that you have got what it takes to play at the regional level?

Wales Touch Association (WTA) has just announced the inaugural Welsh Nationals Tournament in April 2013.  The country is to be divided into six brand new regions who will compete over the weekend of the 6th and 7th April (location TBC).  The West Wales region will include men and women that reside in Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire and will be coached by Matt Adams and Christen Jones – supported by WTA’s new Elite Performance Director, Simon Williams.

The aim is for each region to field a men’s, women’s and mixed team in the Nationals and we will be doing the best we can to ensure that West Wales fulfils each category.

Anyone that is interested in playing regional Touch is called upon to come along to the first session at Parc y Scarlets at the end of January to show what they can do.  The session will include training drills as well as game time.

So What Are The Main Attributes That The Coaches Will Be Looking For?

  • A commitment to the team and training sessions
  • A positive attitude
  • Players that want to work hard
  • The ability to follow instructions and accept feedback
  • Tactical knowledge or a willingness to learn more about the game

Anyone that is interested should be aged 15 years or older as of 1st January 2013 and should register with Nationals co-ordinator, Gareth Revell.  All players that have been selected for Wales’ national preliminary squads are to participate and will be contacted directly in due course.  We also hope that those players that were not offered a squad place for Wales, following the recent Wales trials, will come to the regional sessions.

A series of training sessions in various locations across the region will take place in preparation for the April tournament.  Costs will be kept to an absolute minimum, but players should be aware that contributions towards kit, facility hire, tournament fees etc will be requested.

We’re really looking forward to taking on the best of Wales and immensely proud to be involved in this exciting new chapter of Welsh Touch.

Hollted Y Mellt Yr Wybren / Lightening Strikes in Strade

Y Mellt ar y brig ar ol Rownd 1 CSGT12 / Y Mellt at the top after Round 1 CSGT12

New boys, Y Mellt (The Lightening) stormed into an early lead by beating No Dropped Balls 13 scores to 2 on the opening night of Cyffwrdd Sir Gâr Touch 2012 (CSGT12). 

Y Mellt, sporting their natty new kit (see picture above), are new to Touch, but showed plenty of skill, movement off the ball and pace to win their first game.  In their next game, Y Mellt face local rivals, Hyrddod yr Hendy, which could prove to be a very interesting game.

Elsewhere, reigning champions (2010 and 2011) Orangutans were too much for new boys Hyrddod yr Hendy, eventually running out winners by 7 – 4.  Gower Dragons beat Y Genhedlaeth Nesaf, 6 – 3 in a closer game than the scoreline suggests, Touch experience and tactical knowledge of the game was the only difference between the teams.

Once Were Athletic beat another new team, Charlie’s Angels, 11 – 1 and in the final game of the evening, Friendly Rivals were beaten 7 – 2 by Lookilikies.

Another great night of Touch in the evening sun at Ysgol Y Strade and we’re looking forward to next week! 

 

Below is a highlights video of one of New Zealand’s exciting rugby league players, Shaun Johnson, who grew up playing Touch before going on to represent NZ in both Touch and Rugby League.  He currently plays for New Zealand Warriers in the NRL.  Step!
