Rugby training session

On Friday the Colts and Top Game squads were lucky enough to experience a special rugby training session run by ex-Tigers player and ex-Tigers coach, Ian Smith. He is now Head of Games at Oakham School and he gave the children a memorable afternoon.
After a brief introduction, which mentioned some of the famous players who had been to Oakham (such as Lewis Moody, Tom Croft and Stuart Broad) he got the children working.
The Colts had a session on passing and Top Game looked at gameplay and the technical skills required to produce a solid scrum.

We hope to further develop the links between the two schools in the future and on Wednesday Top Game will travel to Oakham for some more coaching and to play some matches.
