A chance to be coached by a rugby champion!

Apr 21 2017

Time is running out for youth rugby teams across Wales to win a training session with cup-final winning rugby player, Phil John!

The ex-Scarlet and RGC1404 player-coach was a proud member of the team that encountered a tense tournament-final against Pontypridd last weekend before triumphantly lifting the WRU National Cup at the final whistle.    

The opportunity to win a half-day coaching session with the legendary prop forms part of a cracking prize package, courtesy of Hybu Cig Cymru – Meat Promotion Wales (HCC). Also up for grabs for one successful junior rugby team is a whopping £1,000 towards a brand new rugby kit and a wonderful Welsh Beef BBQ for the team.

Phil John said: “For me, PGI Welsh Beef and grassroots rugby go hand-in-hand. After all, what could be better after a physically demanding game than a quality high-protein steak with your teammates? It’s fantastic to think that initiatives like this can play a part in the development of the next generation of Welsh stars and couldn’t think of a better organisation to partner with than PGI Welsh Beef.”

To enter, share a post-match picture or training session on the Welsh Beef Facebook page - www.facebook.com/PGIWelshBeef- before the closing date, 30th April 2017. Don’t forget to include the hashtag #BredInHeaven.

Rhys Llywelyn, Market Development Manager at HCC said: “Rugby is an incredibly important pillar of Welsh culture and a firm favourite on Welsh soil. Welsh Beef is one of our country’s best products, reared on our luscious land, resulting in a fabulous flavour and special succulence!  It’s great to be able to promote this wonderful product, and at the same time, show our support for local rugby clubs and the work they do in the community.

“We’re also thrilled to have a Welsh rugby icon like Phil on board and wish to congratulate him and the RGC1404 squad on their recent achievement.”

Welsh Beef’s Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status protects the product from imitation. It is also assures consumers that Welsh Beef has full traceability and is guaranteed to be sourced from cattle born and reared in Wales, and slaughtered and processed in HCC-approved abattoirs or cutting plants.
