Land of Learning has been very privileged to receive free rugby coaching from the Leicester Tigers Rugby Team. The coaching sessions are held every Tuesday after school by 3 rugby coaches who are part of the Tiger’s team. That’s not all, Land of Learning was then personally invited to watch a rugby match on Saturday 16th January by the Tigers Rugby Team. The game, held on home ground, was part of the European Rugby Championship Cup where Leicester Tigers played against the Italian team, Benetton Treviso. The atmosphere was spectacular and the children thoroughly enjoyed watching the match. Despite the biting cold, the children and the teachers had a fantastic time and came home with a victory of 47:7.
A presentation was made for the Matt Hampson foundation, a charity which aims to help young people whose lives have been dramatically changed by sporting accidents.
