You’re about to watch a try scored in a school game played between Ysgol Brynhyfryd and Ysgol Y Berwyn played in Ruthin RFC. Ysgol Brynhyfryd won the game in the last phase of play.
Just a normal school game!
Just a normal try!
What most people watching this try won’t realise however is that is was scored by one of the schools pupils Ethan who has Down’s Syndrome. However with the support of his teammates Ethan was able to enjoy this amazing moment in front of his friends, family and teachers.
There is so much more to this try than simply winning the game however. Ethan has been able to get to where he is today thanks to the supports of his teammates who have gone as far as helping him with his maths by asking him to assist with the numbers on the back of the shirts before the game.
This is why I love rugby.
