A huge well done to former pupil Mackenzie Martin who received his first cap for the Wales U20s at the end of June.

Having helped Cardiff Schools win the Dewar Shield in Year 10 Mackenzie was selected by Cardiff Blues U16. After an excellent season he was offered scholarships to a number of independent schools in England but chose to remain with Cardiff Blues after being offered a place in their prestigious academy set up whilst studying at Cardiff and Vale College.

During his time at CAVC Mackenzie was an integral part of the team, along with other former pupils Jack Grant and
Cody Eltringham, in helping them with the Welsh Colleges Championship and also represented Cardiff Blues U18. Mackenzie then went on to make his senior debut for Cardiff RFC at the tender age of 17.

All this progress meant that despite having just turned 18 Mackenzie was included in the Wales U20 squad for the Six Nations Summer Series. Mackenzie made his first appearance for Wales in a 45-15 win over Scotland and will be hoping to play in the upcoming games against Georgia and Italy.
