Ponty Youth host the US Navy Academy

Pontypridd Youth will host the touring US Navy Academy team at Sardis Road on Friday 18th March.

Four Valleys rugby clubs are hosting the tourists on their visit to Wales - Pontypridd, Penygraig, Porth Harlequins and Cilfynydd. A forty-seven strong squad has travelled over from the US, with the tour culminating by watching Wales take on Italy at the Principality Stadium on Saturday.

The Ponty Youth v US Navy Academy match on Friday kicks off at 7pm. In their previous fixture Pontypridd Youth lost out narrowly at home to Moseley Youth by 8pts to 12.

Martyn Lewis, secretary of the Pontypridd RFC Mini & Junior section, who helped organise the tour, said: "The US Naval Academy is a prestigious institution, the second oldest in the United States, where a number of various sports including rugby are played.

"It is a great privilege for all the hosting valleys clubs to welcome the touring squad, who will be experiencing the culture of Welsh Rugby for the first time. We are arranging for the Treharris male Voice Choir to sing in the Pontypridd Clubhouse after the game."
