ITN Mark Education’s sponsored rugby team reaches the Welsh Schools Under 16’s Cup Final

Congratulations to Ebbw Fawr Learning Community’s rugby team for reaching the final of the Welsh Schools Under 16’s Cup Final. The match against Whitchurch High School was played at the Millennium Stadium Cardiff, in perfect spring sunshine and proved an excellent spectacle of school rugby.
It was very much a game of two halves. The first half ended scoreless after some stout defensive work from both teams. However, after the break, Whitchurch scored two breakaway tries which set them up for victory. A well worked last minute try for Ebbw Fawr scored by Rhys Bayliss, and superbly converted by Ethan Phillips meant the match finished 29-7 in favour of Whitchurch. 

Roger Marsh, Managing Director, ITN Mark Education, who was at the game said “As sponsors of Ebbw Fawr’s rugby kit, I felt very proud to be associated with such a great sporting event. I can only imagine how proud every player must have felt walking out onto the pitch in this great stadium. The game was played in a fantastic spirit and I would like to offer my congratulations to the players of both teams. I’m sure today will be a day they’ll never forget”.
