Rugby hopefuls to train with British and Irish Lions
15th May 2017

Five Preparatory School rugby hopefuls will be learning from some of the best in the business at a special event.

Llion Morris, George Watkins, Christian Cheesley, Matthew Stubbins and Freddie James will travel to Cardiff on Wednesday, May 17, where they will take part in a training session with the British and Lions squad before they head off on their highly anticipated tour of New Zealand.

The Year 6 pupils at Rydal Penrhos will be on the field for 45 minutes with the likes of George North, Sam Warburton and Owen Farrell before grilling the stars in a special meet and greet session during lunch.

Unfortunate to miss out were Will Tavernor and Oliver Davies, who were named first and second reserves for the trip, but demonstrated “fantastic humility and grace during the draw for the session”, said Prep School head Roger McDuff.

He added: “This is going to be a special experience for those who have been fortunate enough to gain a place at the session, and I am sure that George, Freddie, Matthew, Christian and Llion will get an enormous amount out of it.

“The Lions represent the pinnacle of rugby in the UK and for some of our pupils to have the opportunity to learn from them is something that will live long in the memory.”
