APS Watch England Rugby Train
28 February 2019
On Wednesday the U13 A rugby team took the opportunity to watch the England Rugby team train at St Edward's School.
The England team engaged in a full-bore training ground game against Georgia as they were looking to regroup from their Six Nations defeat by Wales. The session culminated in a 20 minute match scenario including live scrums and a contest for the ball which was refereed by Wayne Barnes.
Eddie Jones and a number of England players (Owen Farrell, George Ford, Elliot Daly and Ben Moon) all took the time to chat with the boys and signed autographs.
This was a great opportunity for the boys to see the high levels of intensity and the fine attention to detail that professional rugby players require to play at a high level.
