Young Resolven Player Leads Wales to Victory

Resolven youth rugby player Bradley Roderick who plays inside centre for Resolven youth has been given the honour of captain for the Welsh youth team. From captaining his local team last year to captaining the national youth team this year is an accolade not seen in Resolven before.



Resolven youth are trained by Craig Pritchard, Steven Lewis and Kevin Lewis and Bradley  has been part of the team who have qualified  to play in  the final of the Welsh Bowl at the Principality Stadium on May 4th

.  He has continued his winning ways by captaining the Welsh team in an exciting win against France where Wales 18’s came back from a 15 point deficit at half time to win 32 – 22 to the sheer delight of his family and friends who went to watch the match .

Achievements such as this come from dedication and commitment along with natural skill and I don’t think this is the last we will hear of Bradley Roderick.  This is just the beginning of what we hope will be a successful journey in his chosen sport .



Well done Bradley and to you and your Resolven team – ‘may the 4th be with you’ in the final of the Welsh Bowl in May!
