Year 5 and 6 pupils from Bolton School Junior girls and boys
have been training hard in the run up to the Sale Sharks Primary
Tag Rugby festival, which will be held at Bolton School on
Wednesday 30th March.
The pupils took part in a training session with Bolton Rugby
Development Officer Steph Veal who gave them a few pointers for the
tournament which will involve a mixed team of Bolton boys and girls
competing against 16 other local primary schools. Bolton School
have offered the School facilities for the event and Sale Sharks
players will be present to meet all the children and give out the
prizes. Steph said: "There is clearly some great talent in Bolton,
it was good to see the boys and girls improving and getting more
involved as the session went on."
The Sale Sharks Primary Link offers in-school tag rugby coaching
to primary schoolchildren throughout the North West. Since 2001
over 15,000 children in more than 100 primary schools across the
Trafford, Stockport, Manchester and Cheshire have received rugby
coaching through the Sale Sharks Primary Link Scheme but this is
the first time they have hosted a festival of this type.
The Sharks are due to play a ground breaking Aviva Premiership
match against London Irish at the Reebok Stadium on Saturday 16th
April (5.30 p.m).
