Hayes to Leave Ravers!

Caldy RFC Fly-Half Rhys Hayes is to leave the Championship club at the end of the season.

The 34-year-old former Chester & England Counties International has spent the past seven years at Paton Field after joining from Chester RFC.

He has made 167 appearances and scored 230 points in the Black & Gold of the Ravers.

Gareth Davies (Director of Rugby) on Rhys:

“Rhys has been on a wild journey with the club with us since we first got promoted to National One then stuck with us in National Two and National One again and has proved his quality at both 15 and 10 in the Championship for the last two years. A relentless competitor and highly talented individual he will be missed in the squad. A workaholic mentality that has seen him miss very little rugby in the last two years. I wish him all the best next season at Chester as Head Coach.”

Matt Cairns (Head Coach) on Rhys: 

“Rhys has been a big part of caldys success over the last few years and has always had a huge influence when we have managed against the odds to win games in the championship over the last two years. I’m glad that he won’t be lost to the game and is going on to start his coaching career. We wish him all the best in his new role.”

Richard Vasey (Coach) on Rhys:

“Rhys has been a huge part of what we have done in the last 4-5 years at Caldy. I am delighted he has thrived in the Championship after cruelly missing it out on our National One winning season. He has been so important in some huge wins over the last 2 seasons which only goes to show how talented he is. I wish him all the best at Chester in his new coaching role.”

JJ (Captain) on Rhys: 

“Rhys has been a huge contributor to our success in the last 7 years. He brought with him a huge left boot and incredibly high standards on the pitch. He has been one of our most consistent players of late. And it says a lot about a player when if he plays well, the team play well. If he coaches as well as he plays then watch out for Chester!”

Rhys will be heading back to Hare Lane to take the Head Coach Role at Chester RUFC for the 2024/25 National 2 North Season.

We wish him all the very best in his next chapter of life.

Thank you Rhys
