Some of the pupils from the Read School had a useful training session with some of the coaches of the Leicester Tigers Academy. Ben Abrams, Sam Stephens, Tom Scholefield, Max Hammell and Eddie Liddle met up with the rest of the Selby U13s team on Saturday 29 January at a local rugby club in Leicester and met with international Argentinian rugby player, Marcos Ayerza for a Q and A session. The boys were then allowed a photo with the Tigers prop.
After this the U13s went onto the pitch to be coached by one of the Academy coaches. The Read boys put on a good performance for the Tigers coach and I’m sure he will be on the lookout for some of them in the future.
Following the training session, the young lads went to have a cheeky Nando’s before the big match of Leicester Tigers against Northampton Saints which turned out to be a great home win for the Tigers of 25-15!
