Jack Forster, an Old Boy of Bolton School, returned with his
Sale Sharks' team-mates and coaches to provide a rugby camp for
clubs from around the country. They were also joined by Jason
Leonard, an England World Cup winner and one of the world's most
capped internationals, who trained a group of lucky
children chosen by Aviva.
The camp involved Sale Sharks'
coaches and players offering training to a range of national rugby
clubs including Twickenham Rugby Club, Preston Grasshoppers,
Chester Rugby Club, Aldershot Rugby Club, Penallta (from Wales),
Dinnington (from Sheffield) and others.
The Sale players, including
Carl Fearns and Chris Leck, shadowed the coaches
and helped out the rugby clubs
The camp ran prior to the Sharks' Aviva Premiership Rugby match against
London Irish at the Reebok Stadium, home of Bolton
Wanderers. A game which they lost 34-20 but they did attract
over 16,000 spectators on a weekend when a lot of people had left
Greater Manchester to follow the FA Cup semi-finals at
Wembley. Rugby at the Reebok helps position Sale Sharks as a
regional team and they will play two more fixtures there in the
next two years.
