South West Communications Group is sponsoring Exeter Chiefs’ Exeter College-based Academy rugby team as they prepare for the Sanix World Rugby Youth Invitational Tournament later this month.
Exeter College’s 1st XV is the only UK school or college team to take part in this prestigious event, described as the pinnacle of the sport for schoolboy rugby.
Participation is by invitation only with the overseas schools selected by their respective unions to represent their country. The RFU’s objective is to select a competitive and quality team to fly the flag for the country against some of the best teams in the world.
The tournament is hosted by the Japan Rugby Football Union at the Global Arena on the island of Kyūshū.
IT and communications experts and main Exeter Chiefs’ sponsor swcomms already has a relationship with the college by virtue of their apprenticeship programme on which 17 members of staff are currently enrolled.
Brian Lodge, swcomms’ managing director, said: “The South West has a proud history of providing teams for this tournament. Jack Nowell, Sam Hill and Dave Ewers, of Exeter Chiefs, have all taken part in the past. It is testament to the quality of the Exeter College team that has been selected to represent England in 2018.
“We wish Exeter College all the best for the tournament and look forward to following their progress throughout the week.”
