Young rugby players from Morpeth RFC Under 13s were lucky enough to receive a coaching session from England Under 18s and former Newcastle Falcons coach John Fletcher.
John put the team through its paces with various innovative skill-based games that encouraged the team to think on their feet and solve problems on the pitch as well as providing some insight into the England set-up. He left impressed by the commitment and effort put in by the team in training and wished them well for next season.
The session has invogorated the team after a hard first season in junior rugby and the team, coaches and parents thanked the side’s main sponsors, Miller Construction, The Physiotherapy & Sports Clinic and Down 2 Earth Horticultural Services.
There are open touch-rugby sessions on Thursday nights from 6.30pm until 8pm. New players are welcome.
