The best of Wales’ under-18 rugby talent from eight colleges is competing for the College Championship

and you can follow all the excitement live on the S4C website. Welsh internationals, George North and Scott Williams, came to prominence through College Rugby.

Geraint Rowlands, S4C Head of Broadcasting and Commissioner for Sport, said: “Showing rugby live and exclusively on our website is a relatively new development and it’s an exciting step forward.

“College Rugby attracts a lot of followers and now there’s an additional platform for the talents of these young people who represent the colleges. Who knows, maybe some of them will be the international rugby stars of the years to come?”
