On Wednesday 12th February Riddlesdown Collegiate and Harlequins hosted a 10-a-side Tournament for local schools at Trinity RFC.

The day was aimed at promoting the College VI Rugby Academy in association with Harlequins which will be launched in September.

There was some exceptional talent on show and all schools were able to benefit from skills clinics led by academy and premiership coaches. These included set plays, breakdown work, attacking space and tackle technique.

We were also fortunate to have Mike Brown with us for the day. Mike is Harlequins most capped player and has 72 caps for England. A fantastic role model for our students to aspire to follow in his footsteps. The Riddlesdown boys were fortunate enough to be invited to a Q&A session with Mike in the morning.

Any further details regarding the College VI Rugby Academy can be found in the College VI section of the website.
