2013 TOURNAMENT REVIEW
Wales Touch Association’s annual tournament on Pendine Sands took place over two days with the Men's and Women's Comp on the Saturday, followed by the Mixed Open Competition on the Sunday.
Gorllewin Gwyllt, in only their second ever tournament, entered a mixed team and were able to keep one of the weekend's trophies in the Wild West by winning the Plate Competition.
GG were drawn in the same group as favourites (and eventual winners), Cardiff Raptors as well as Irish club, Sandymount.
On the other side of the draw were Phoenix Touch, Varsity Vandals, TMTY and Saxons.
In the first game against Raptors, GG faced an extremely tough challenge, facing a well-organised and experienced Touch unit. Raptors were lead by Wales Mixed Open player coach, Gareth Revell and despite fielding some younger players, boasted a very experienced side with a number of Welsh international Touch players.
