Premiership Rugby has launched a ground-breaking new initiative that will see young people aged 14-16 from disadvantaged communities across England given the opportunity to participate in regular sporting activity and personal development workshops that use rugby as inspiration.
In partnership with BT Sport's The Supporters Club, the broadcaster's initiative that aims to build a better world through sport, and Restart Rugby, the Official Charity of The Rugby Players' Association (RPA), the Urban Rugby Squad ran across all 12 Premiership Rugby clubs this summer.
The programme will be implemented, thanks to a substantial grant from BT Sport's The Supporters Club, which will see club coaches across the country deliver a 12-week recruitment and development programme with four local satellite clubs.
In October half term students represented Saracens at The Stoop in fine fashion, taking skills from other sports into rugby, forming a strong tag rugby team. Our participants competed against; Leicester Tigers, Wasps, Quins including a fantastic 45-15 win over London Irish!
