Newport retain key players

In these times of unprecedented lockdown measures and with the country under a blanket of bad news and gloom we thought that Newport RFC supporters needed some good news to cheer them up.

Today we are announcing that Rhys Jenkins, Matt O’Brien, Jonny Morris and Geraint O’Driscoll will all be wearing the famous Black & Amber of Newport RFC whenever the new season starts.

These four players are undoubtedly key cornerstones of the team who between them have racked up 571 appearances for the club scoring 104 tries, 286 conversions, 260 penalties and 3 drop goals for a collective points tally of 1895. ‘OB’ & ‘God’ are both in the Newport RFC top ten all time points scorers and all are proud recipients of the 100 cap award.

Training and matches are currently suspended but let’s hope that it is not too long before we see these guys back on the field representing our club.

Watch this space for more announcements.
