The rugby season got off to a great start, with 24 senior boys from Years 11 to 13 enjoying a pre-season rugby tour to Stratford-upon-Avon last weekend. The boys were coached by the community team at Northampton Saints using the training pitches at Franklin Gardens and went behind the scenes to experience aspects of professional rugby through a tour of the facilities and the stadium.
On the Sunday the group visited Tewkesbury RFC where they spent the day training in the glorious sunshine. Mr Priest, Mr Calder and Mr Allin were all impressed with their work rate and desire to improve and hope this will aid in their preparation for the season.
The senior rugby teams are preparing themselves for a busy season of fixtures.
