WALES will take on RGC in Colwyn Bay this summer.

The high profile friendly was announced this week and will see former COBRA duo Huw Worthington and Dan Owen joined by Sam Jones of Llanidloes in lining up for the North Wales regional side.

The June 2 match is being used as part of Welsh national team preparations for their two test tour of Tonga and Samoa this summer.

RGC head coach Mark Jones said: “This fixture is a fantastic opportunity for RGC and North Wales rugby to help Wales prepare for their important up and coming tour.

“Perhaps even more importantly, it shows how far we've come as a  region.

“Players who have come right through the pathway in North Wales will have the ultimate honour and a chance to play against our national team, demonstrating the pathway now in place for North Wales players to develop to a very high level.”
