Woodbridge Rugby Club youngsters take to the pitch with Leicester Tigers’ JP Pietersen and Fraser Balmain

Young Suffolk rugby players took lessons from a team of premiership winning professionals – before watching their new mentors secure a bonus point win in front of a 21,000 strong crowd.

Woodbridge Rugby Club’s outing to the Leicester Tigers’ “Matchday Coaching Clinic” saw the youngsters develop their individual and team skills, as well as taking tips and techniques to work on for the rest of the season.

They also quizzed Tigers player Will Evans about his life in rugby before enjoying the atmosphere at Welford Road where the Tigers stormed to victory against Gloucester.

Jason Turner, a coach at Woodbridge RFC, said: “We’ve had an amazing day. We had a great coaching session in the morning – we did passing drills, identifying space and a bit of contact.

“They had a Q&A with Will Evans, who was really good and the group absolutely loved it. They got a lot out of the day and the good thing from our point of view is they are getting that half the stuff we tell them is true!”
