Rugby Master Class from England Head Coach

May 9th, 2017

A very fortunate group of Year 7 and Year 10 pupils were treated to a sporting master class from England head coach Eddie Jones.

Eddie, accompanied by former Australian international Glen Ella, passed on tips to the young players during a visit to Stourton Park, home of Stourbridge Rugby Club.

The pupils had the opportunity to question Eddie on subjects such as: who were his favourite players, how many hours the England squad train and whether or not body shape matters for a rugby player.

Eddie closed the session by reminding the boys that the most important factors in rugby were to catch the ball straight on, to always keep moving on the ball and most importantly of all to enjoy playing rugby.
