Former Monmouth School for Boys’ Head Boy, Hallam Amos, wasn’t able to make his graduation this week so his Wales rugby team-mates brought the graduation to him.

The Cardiff University medical student is out in Switzerland with the rest of the Welsh World Cup training squad.

Hallam, who grew up in Cross Ash, missed out on attending his graduation, after earning an outstanding first class degree in Neuroscience (BSc).

His Wales pals were aware of this, so the entertainment committee – with George North and Liam Williams leading the way – decided to arrange a special presentation for him.

They bought a graduation hat from home and called a meeting at the squad base in Fiesch, with all the players and management in attendance.

North spoke about the challenges of being a professional rugby player and how incredible it is to study alongside that – and especially to get a first-class degree.

Hallam still has a couple of years to go on his overall medical degree and will continue to combine his studies with his rugby career at Cardiff Blues.
