Rugby players from Claycots compete at Twickenham Stadium

Youngsters from Claycots Primary School played tag rugby with 100 other children at Twickenham Stadium before watching their rugby heroes in the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final.

The Slough school’s team played 12 other primary schools from across the UK in the 82,000 seat stadium on Saturday, May 28, before watching Saracens defeat Exeter Chiefs.

The Claycots team was a guest of London Irish RFC as part of the Aviva Premiership’s ‘Something to Chew’ on initiative, a healthy eating campaign using rugby to captivate youngsters.

Claycot’s sports development manager, Alex Reffell, said: “It was just an incredible opportunity for them to play in Twickenham. It’s just a massive stadium and pupils who were selected just really love the sport.

“For us as a school it’s just about creating these opportunities for our pupils, we all support them in their ambitions.”

The team’s Twickenham trip was also sponsored by the Slough School Sports network and School Days Direct.
