Rugby coaching with Craig Newby
On Tuesday 5 February 2013 Craig Newby, former All Black and Leicester Tigers back row visited Sevenoaks School to provide coaching for young aspiring rugby players from local prep schools.
During the two-hour training session the boys, from Holmewood House, Hazlewood, Sevenoaks Prep and Solefield School, worked on handling, running, and contact skills with the Leicester Tigers legend. All his experience, knowledge and encouragement ensured that they had a fantastic experience at Sevenoaks.
Craig finished off the day answering questions and signing autographs for all those involved, which was a valuable experience for players and staff.
We hope to hold similar sessions in future, with other sports professionals, to provide an educational experience for our feeder schools.
