Developing future talent.
Leigh Savage
Youth XV Manager, Brecon RFC.
Last season was long and disjointed but despite that, the youth team quickly gained numbers and momentum and went from strength to strength. They came runners-up in the initial Regional Youth cup competition, losing out Beddau youth in a tight match 16-12.

will then be placed into regional leagues.
  During this pre-season our aim has been to make training fun and valuable, developing the skills needed for the forthcoming season.
The team planned to play 3 pre-season friendlies before the season starts properly on Saturday 3rd September 2022.
During this period the players and coaching staff have selected a new team captain and vice-captain along with 2 team leaders:
Team Captain - Teilo Harris. Vice Captain - Ryan Luker.
Finally, I would like to thank Jason Jenkins for his coaching support over the last few seasons he has coached at Brecon RFC and I would like to welcome Dale William into the Youth coaching setup.
We are still recruiting new and old players who want to be part of a focused and well driven team, where team spirit and teamwork are at the heart of our core values.
