Sam meets England Rugby’s Head Coach Eddie Jones

Our Year 7 student meets top rugby stars at his local club.

Our Year 7 student Sam had a fantastic opportunity to meet top rugby stars.

Sam, who plays in the U12’s at Stourbridge Rugby Club was invited to meet Glen Ella, a former Australian rugby player together with the current head coach of the England national rugby union team, Eddie Jones when they visited the club recently.  Glen did a Q and A session with the press and young players.  Eddie Jones spent time coaching the Under 15 team and Under 12’s.  He observed the teams and gave lots of information and coaching tips to the young players.  At the end of the session Sam had the opportunity to chat to Eddie about rugby and discussed their favourite players.  Sam’s group asked for signatures and Sam had a very special souvenir - Eddie signed his boots!  Sam said, “This has been a great opportunity for our team to meet our sporting heroes and for them to give us tips to help our game in the future”.
