Taibach Lion Richard Hibbard holds training session
LIONS rugby hero Richard Hibbard has held a special training session for a group of players.
The Taibach star, who plays for the Ospreys, joined Ystrad Rhondda RFC to put them through their paces with an in-depth training session.
The training session with Richard was the first prize in a competition launched by Swansea's Oak Furniture Land.
Rugby mad Adam Newman, aged 15, won the first prize for his home team Ystrad Rhondda RFC.
At the training session, the Wales and British Lions hooker worked with dedicated coach Lee Wenham to teach the boys how to carry out effective safe tackles and rucking.
Richard said: "Thanks to Oak Furniture Land for running the completion, the boys were all great sports and showed some real potential.
"Hopefully I'll see them playing for Wales in a few years".
The Ystrad Rhondda RFC team was also given a rugby ball signed by the British Lions hooker.
