Bablake School welcomed Wasps Rugby to its playing fields as it hosted a Rugby Day for local Primary Schools.
The day started with a focus on safety, as all players were fitted with mouthguards ready for a day of contact rugby. Inspired by the recent Six Nations performances, the children involved were ready and raring to go as Bablake and Wasps rugby coaches led a morning of training.
Refuelled by a hearty lunch, the schools split into teams in the afternoon with each team assigned a specific coach. After some final training, the teams showed off their new skills in a mini-festival of matches. The achievements of the teams were then celebrated with a presentation as spectators and children enjoyed the end of an excellent day of rugby. There were some super prizes handed out to thoroughly deserving young players.
Thank you to all the schools that attended, to Wasps Rugby and to Bablake's Junior and Senior School rugby coaches, especially Messrs Benfield, Burdett and Wilson for arranging the day.
