OUR youngsters have kicked off their dreams of playing rugbyfor Wales, thanks to Puffin Pro-

duce’s Blas yTir brand. The Haverfordwest-based growers’ co-

operative bought akicking masterclass atacharity auction and chose four young players from Pembrokeshire’s county under-15 team to experience the opportu- nity of alifetime at the home of Welsh rugby. DannyRawlings from Hook, Dion

James from Cilgerran, Aaron Cookson from Cosheston and DannyWainwright from Manorbier received kicking tips from Welsh stars Leigh Halfpenny, Dan Biggar,RhysPriestland, James Hook, Rhys Patchell, and formerWales interna- tional kicking legend and nowcoachNeil Jenkins. “We purchased the kicking master

class opportunity at acharity auction and decided to offer it to some young

rugbystars from local clubs,” said Puf- fin’s managing director,HuwThomas. “It wasatremendous experience for

them and one I’m sure they won’t forget, and maybewe’ll see them wear the red jersey ofWales in afew years time!” The masterclass at the Millennium Stadium waspart of Wales star Ryan Jones’ testimonial year programme and he said hewasimpressed with the young- sters. “I thought they were fantastic,really

good,” he added. “I think they learned athing or two

from our boys. They have the potential and nowhavetogoawayand work at it.” DannyRawlings plays forTasker Mil-
