There will be two representative matches involving Mid District Select and Crawshays Welsh teams, at differing age levels, held at Sardis Road over the next two weeks.
Tomorrow evening the Mid-District Rugby Union Under 19's (Youth) will take on the Crawshays Welsh RFC Under 19s (KO 7.15pm).
Next Tuesday evening (12th May, KO 7.15pm) the Mid-District Rugby Union Senior XV will play the Crawshays Welsh RFC.
The matches are being held in support of "The George Morgan Young Players Trust" established to promote and develop the sporting ambitions of youngsters under the age of 21 within the area covered by the Mid-District Rugby Union (Lower Powys, Rhondda Cynon Taff, Merthyr and the old Rhymney Valley areas - now County Borough Councils).
George Morgan was a past President of the Welsh Rugby Union and Secretary of the Mid-District Rugby Union for many years. He also represented this District on the Welsh Rugby Union with Des Barnett for many years.
The Mid-District Senior XV for this representative match is managed by Richard Langmead and the coaches are Paul John, Dale McIntosh and Mark Randell. A large representation of Pontypridd players will feature in the match.
Admission prices for the two games have been kept low in the hope of attracting a bumper crowd to witness some great rugby, and to support a worthy charity.
The Youth game tomorrow will be charged at £3, and the Senior game next Tuesday will be at £5. Children under 16 and Senior Citizens, for both games, will be admitted free of charge
