Many of the pupil's are keen rugby players, with some being part of the junior section at local club Newark RFC. New Zealander, Romans, enjoyed taking part in the session and sharing rugby playing experiences during a question and answer session.

He said, "It was good fun to join in with the class's rugby session. The pupils were extremely well behaved. You could tell some of them had played a bit of rugby before, some of their passing was very impressive."

Green and White hooker Vickers, in his first season with the club, found it rewarding going out into the community and enjoyed engaging with the pupils from Flintham Primary.

"I actually joined in with the session and it was great fun. They asked some great questions after the rugby session in the Q & A. I was impressed with how enthusiastic they are towards rugby," commented Vickers.

As well as going into school as part of the community programme, Nottingham Rugby stars including Alun Walker and Ryan Hough have been providing professional rugby expertise to local clubs Mansfield RFC and Ashfield RFC.

Sunday sees Nottingham Rugby face Rotherham Titans at Meadow Lane in an early kick off because of the 6 Nations. The 1pm Kick off allows fans to cheer on the Green and Whites before staying at the ground to watch the England V Wales 6 Nations clash in the Meadow Lane Sports Bar.
