Hallam represents Wales at World Cup in JapanOctober 16th, 2019
Former Head Boy at Monmouth School for Boys, Hallam Amos, has represented Wales at the Rugby World Cup in Japan.
Hallam played on the wing and was unlucky not to get on the scoresheet in Wales’ 35-13 victory against minnows, Uruguay, on Sunday 13th October.
Hallam had two tries chalked off after receiving forward passes and was also unfortunate to lose control of the ball when diving for the line.
Wales have finished top of Pool D after four wins from four fixtures and Hallam will be hoping to secure a place in their match-day squad for the World Cup quarter-final with France on Sunday 20th October with an 8.15am kick-off.
Meanwhile, Monmouth’s 1st XV put up a brave fight in a narrow 21-15 defeat to Malvern College in a hard-fought contest for the Border Shield.
Both sets of players showed superb skill levels under the lights at Ledbury Rugby Club as the rain-swept conditions made handling incredibly difficult on Friday 11th October.
Tries in each half from Rhys and captain, George, and five points from Gethin’s boot gave Monmouth 1st XV hope in the tough conditions.
However, Monmouth were eventually pipped by Malvern for the second year in a row.
Monmouth triumphed 31-23 in the inaugural fixture for the Border Shield in 2017 and were edged out, 28-22, by Malvern 12 months ago.
Despite the narrow loss, Joe excelled with his handling at the restarts, while Fin made some fine tackles and Jamie was superb at the breakdown and created a host of turnovers.
