Rare treat for Police children rugby players
Members of the Police Mini Rugby Section had the rare treat on March 18 of meeting some real rugby professionals in the shape of the Scotland Rugby 7s team due to compete in the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens.
A fun morning was had by all, and the Scottish players were happy to pass on tips on how the Police youngsters could improve their game. The players even joined some of the friendly games that took place that morning against the Flying Kukries Club and they were pushed hard by the Police and Kukries kids.
The day ended with a group photo and the Scottish players were wished the luck that they really need for competing in the Hong Kong Sevens.
Since it was formed in June last year as part of a healthy lifestyle initiative by the Police Rugby Club to offer a summer training programme to sons and daughters of Force members, the Police Mini Rugby Section has developed from strength to strength.
Mini Rugby offers an excellent way for children to stay healthy, master new skills and make new friends in a safe environment. Training, conducted by qualified coaches and members of the Police Rugby Club, is open to both boys and girls up to the age of 11. No previous experience is needed and training is held at Police Sports and Recreation Club every Sunday between 10am and 11:30am.
Anyone interested in enrolling their children in mini rugby or playing themselves may contact the Police Rugby Club by emailing email@example.com.
