UWIC RFC End Season in Style 

The University of Wales Institute, Cardiff’s (UWIC) rugby season ended with a celebration as their 2nd team won the Mallett Cup.

The Mallett Cup is the second oldest cup competition in Great Britain, first played for in 1893. It was fitting that the oldest surviving winner of this competition, Tom Holley was there to present the cup to what must be one of the youngest sides to have won it.

In the final, held at the historic Cardiff Arms Park, UWIC 2nds defeated Cardiff Internationals (CIACs) 1st team 22 – 10. Tries were scored by Ryan Shahin (2), Tom Hancock and Jason Harries with Tom Hancock converting his own try.

Chris Davey, Director of Rugby at UWIC, said: “This win is a fitting end to the season for our 2nd XV.  A number of players were making their final appearance in a UWIC jersey and this was a good send off for them.”

UWIC RFC can now add this recent cup win to their European 7’s, BUSA 7’s and BUSA women’s crowns.
