Praise for Plymouth pupils who tackle rugby
PLYMOUTH MPs have praised the efforts of the Rugby Football Union (RFU) in getting more children to play rugby.
MPs Oliver Colvile and Alison Seabeck attended an event hosted by the RFU at Tor Bridge High School, in which children from three schools received special rugby coaching and played games. Including Tor Bridge, pupils from Lipson Community College and Sir John Hunt Community Sports College were invited.
The event was a part of the RFU's 'All Schools' scheme, aiming to encourage a million young people in the UK to participate in more sport, particularly rugby.
Mr Colvile said: "This programme from the RFU is a good example of what can be done to not only get the students involved in sport at school, but also to provide them with opportunities to carry on playing outside school in their local communities.

"The more we can encourage youngsters to play sport the better."
The event was considered a success and many pupils seemed impressed by the RFU's training and games.
Paula Rowe, of the RFU, said: "It was a great day. The kids were so enthusiastic and had lots of fun. It went really well."
Alison Seabeck said: "I'm really delighted to see Plymouth schools as part of the RFU's 'All Schools' programme.
"I'm so pleased to see the enthusiasm the pupils have shown. It's very clear that there is a lot of talent to be discovered and who knows where that will lead?"
