Before helping Saracens storm to their third consecutive Premiership win of the season against Bath, Jamie George paid a surprise visit to St Andrew’s Primary School to deliver a special prize from club sponsors, Allianz.
George arrived at the school with some brand new rugby balls that were won by Richard Clifford, father of St Andrew’s pupil Nathan Clifford, who correctly guessed there were 287 squeezed into a taxi at Saracens’ match against South African Barbarians in May.
St. Andrews’ Primary School pupils were able to listen to Jamie talking about ‘a day in the life’ of a Saracens player and how he got into the sport.
Competition winner Richard Clifford was delighted with his prize. He said: “The children loved hearing Jamie talk about his life as a rugby player and were especially keen to hear about all the injuries he’d picked up! Saracens and Allianz are doing great things in the way they’re reaching out to the community and the rugby balls have gone to a very good home.”
Richard’s club Enfield Ignatians RFC will also receive some of the balls for their thriving junior section.
