Last night the 1st XV were lucky enough to have a guest coach working with them and whilst the boys always train hard there was a noticeable lift in the session – after all it’s not every day you’re coached by a World Cup winner!
Jonny Wilkinson spent the evening working with Shanners and Hollers delivering the coaching and then got stuck in with the team run. And it wasn’t just the 1st XV who benefited as the Club U14s were just finishing up a training session of their own and a number of the boys spotted what was happening and stayed to watch part of it. Hopefully the next generation of Club players were inspired – they certainly looked it!
It was a rare privilege and the Club is incredibly grateful to Jonny for spending the time with us, and not just for the fantastic coaching but also for hanging around with the players afterwards for photos and the odd autograph.
