RGC have received a huge boost ahead of the new Principality Premiership season with the news that head coach Mark Jones has agreed to remain at the club.

The Gogs have enjoyed a glittering spell under the former Llanelli star since his appointment in August 2016, which has seen them establish themselves as a significant top-flight and also clinching the WRU National Cup for the first time in the club’s short history in his first season in charge.

His relationship with assistant Phil John has also reaped significant rewards, and the news is a welcome boost for the set-up ahead what is expected to be a critical summer following the departures of influential trio Tiaan Loots, Alex Schwartz and Jacob Botica.

Jones played 47 internationals for Wales and was interim attack coach for the national side during the 2013 campaign.

He also spent five years as Scarlets attack and skills coach and was head coach at Rotherham before making the high-profile move to Stadiwm Zip World.

Sion Jones, General Manager for the North Wales development region, said: “I am delighted to confirm RGC head coach Mark Jones has committed to North Wales for the 2018/19 season.

“On a personal note I am looking forward to working with Mark and all of the team, hopefully building on the momentum, energy and positivity created over last two seasons.”
