Coleg y Cymoedd to take on Salford on Wednesday

The Wales Rugby League Development Academy at Coleg y Cymoedd will take on Salford Red Devils Academy on Wednesday 25th May at AJ Bell Stadium (kick-off 2pm).

Spectators are welcome to attend.

Over the last 12 months, a total of seven players from Coleg y Cymoedd, three in 2021 and four in 2022, all of whom played in this encounter, have signed professionally with Salford and played in their academy and / or reserves side.

Wales Rugby League General Manager, Mark Jones said: “Our partnership with Salford continues to flourish and our boys are excited about the prospect of playing Salford’s College Academy at the AJ Bell Stadium again this year.

“After a loss at the AJ Bell and a draw in our last game against them in Wales, our senior boys are looking to go one step further this week.

“This is an opportunity for our new cohort to impress and join our other seven players that have signed professional contracts with Salford in the last two academic years.”
