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.
