The students had the opportunity to meet current Welsh rugby internationals, Alun Wyn Jones, Sam Warburton, Hallam Amos and Gareth Davies. The boys were presented by the players with T shirts from BT. Sam Warburton signed the t-shirts.
The event finished with the boys taking part in a cage rugby practical session with players and coaches from the Gwent Dragons.
The Year 9 boys representing the school were Liam Amphlett, Luke Webb and Tyrese Fontella.
