Jack Roberts is Premiership Player for April
By Bryan Weaver | 25/05/2013
Drovers’ centre Jack Roberts has been selected as the WRU Premiership Player for April.
21-year-old, Bangor-born, Jack joined the Drovers at the start of the 2011/12 season. He has made close on 50 appearances for Llandovery and scored 16 tries – an average of one every 3 games.
Jack is the FIFTH Church Bank team member to be named Premiership Player of the Month during this season, following Rhodri Williams in September, Shaun Miles in October, Matthew Jacobs in January and Kieran Murphy in March.

The Pwllheli RFC website says the following:
“The club are delighted to add to the congratulations being offered to Jack Roberts as it was announced that he is the Principality Premiership Player for April. Jack played all his rugby at Pwllheli before joining Llandovery at the age of sixteen. There he was joined by Welsh internationals George North and prop Rhodri Jones. George played much of his rugby at Bodegroes and Rhodri played all his youth rugby here at Pwllheli.
Jack has had an excellent season for Llandovery who have just had their most successful season ever. Jack scored eight tries with four of them coming in April.
Proud father Mark is Youth and Under 16s coach at Pwllheli. Both father and son hoped that Jack would be offered a contract in Wales but it was the ever improving Rotherham RFC who offered Jack the opportunity of a professional contract in the English Championship. The club are very proud of this young man's progress and wish him the very best for the future.”
The Rotherham RFC website announced this week that Jack will be joining their squad for the 2013/14 Championship season.
