RWC 2003 Winner Neil Back takes rugby training

1 December 2017

Our U15 A XV were treated this week when two legends of English rugby came into school to coach the team.

Three-time British Lion and Rugby World Cup 2003 winner Neil Back took the training session along with Ian Hunter who was part of the RWC 1995 England squad and a 1993 British Lion to New Zealand.

A real honour and privilege to see such attention to detail and energy from two heroes of the game. The boys were taken through their paces, from catch and pass, to tackle technique and breakdown tips. A wonderful experience and a memory that will live with our boys forever.
