Fantastic Rugby Achievement

26th November 2018

Charley Ward, one of our Year 7 students is a member of the Leicester Forest U12’s rugby team.

On Sunday 18 November 2018 the team played in The Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup.

The Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup is a series of national grassroots rugby festivals for U11 and U12 rugby teams. Run in conjunction with all twelve Premiership Rugby clubs, the regional rugby events are an essential part of the UK rugby calendar. To date, nearly 70,000 youngsters have participated in the tournament since its inception.

The under-12 competition was a fantastic spectacle for those in attendance with the highly competitive fixtures providing a meaningful platform for youngsters to develop their rugby skills.

Leicester Forest were victorious, showing great spirit right up until the final whistle.  The team won  a trip to the Gallagher Premiership Rugby Final on Saturday 1 June 2019, where they will meet a Land Rover rugby ambassador, and join in a Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup Parade at half-time.

Well done Charley - what a fantastic achievement!
