Following the successful tag rugby launch in May, over 60 boys aged 9 to 16 enjoyed the inaugural Phil Vickery Rugby Class at Hartpury College in mid August. They developed their rugby skills throughout the week long course with RFU qualified coaches. The boys had the opportunity to watch Gloucester RFC train and enjoyed a question and answer session with premiership stars Lesley Vainakola and Andrew Hazell. Using Hartpury’s excellent facilities they also had the opportunity to play Rugby 7’s, Weight Training, Video Analysis and the course culminated in matches being played on the Friday afternoon in front of over 100 spectators. Awards were given to players in each of the age categories for their attitude, commitment and skills. The final rugby class of this year is a day two day course at Truro School in the October half term.
