U10A rugby team visit Twickenham

The Paragon School U10A rugby team were treated to an incredible experience on Saturday 16th November when they played on the hallowed turf of Twickenham before the Killik Cup match between Fiji and the Barbarians. The team were invited to play in the mini-festival which saw them face opposition from Hull and Stamford. Toby Goodman, our Director of Sport, said, 'It was a fantastic opportunity for the children to play at the 'Home of Rugby' and for them to be inspired by playing on the same pitch as their idols. It was a particularly special occasion for one of our boys as he was the third generation of his family to have played at Twickenham, with his father and grandfather having played their previously." The team and their families stayed afterwards to watch the thrilling encounter between Fiji and the Barbarians which was won by Fiji 33-31.
