Students take detour to watch Nottingham Rugby

NOTTINGHAM Rugby wishes students from Farnborough School the best of luck on their tour of Manchester this weekend.

Farnborough School tour visit

TOUR OF DUTY: Farnborough School students stop in at Lady Bay to watch Nottingham Rugby in action.

The Year 10 students, who are four-time Nottingham City School Rugby Champions, stopped off at the Green and Whites' Lady Bay training base before making the trip north.

The youngsters watched Nottingham's final practice session of the week ahead the club's RFU Championship clash with London Scottish, met players and quizzed head coach Martin Haag.

Green and Whites captain Brent Wilson, Australian lock Dan Montagu and former junior England international No. 8 Alex Shaw all stopped to chat to the inquisitive juniors and posed for a unique team photo before jumping on a team coach bound for the nation's capital.

Nottingham Rugby Community and First Team Manager Steve Smith, who organised the visit as part of the Green and Whites Rugby in the City Project, hopes the morning detour helps get the highly-rated side off on the right foot in Manchester.

"There are not may secondary schools in the country that take their students on rugby tours anymore, and I congratulate Farnborough School for giving these students that valuable exposure," Smith said.

"I remember touring as a youngster myself, and it is on trips just like this that I developed the passion for the game that has taken me to where I am today.

"There are a number of passionate players on tour with Farnborough who are heavily involved in club rugby, most notably with Moderns, and others who have been indentified in County squads."
