Rugby legend Jason Leonard will be attempting to convert youngsters to the game in Norfolk next week.

England's most capped international will be joined by 120 aspiring players at Broadland RFC on Wednesday.

Children from eight local schools will take part in coaching sessions and games with Leonard and the RFU's community coaches.

The coaching clinic is part of a series of events in the SEE U @ RUG B programme, a joint initiative between Royal & Sun Alliance and the RFU to take the game to more communities.

Leonard said: “I'm delighted to give my support to the programme and the work that they have been doing in encouraging young rugby talent throughout the country. It is hugely fulfilling to be involved in sessions like this.”

The schools taking part next Wednesday are the Cliff Park Middle and High Schools, Caister HS, Lynn Grove HS, St Mary's Primary School, Woodlands MS, Edward Worlledge MS and Wroughton MS.
