A squad of young players from Wymondham are off to play at the home of Premiership giants Leicester Tigers.

Wymondham Under-10s beat sides from Diss, Swaffham and Holt to reach the final of Leicester's Prima Shield competition, on Sunday, October 23.

The final will take place on the pitch at Welford Road before the Wymondham players stay on to watch Tigers take on French side Racing 92 in the European Champions Cup.

'It's going to be a great day out for the team,' said lead coach Peter Graves.

'In addition to the match results, the team, coaches and supporters were also scored on their behaviour and the RFU's core rugby values of teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship – so we're very proud of everyone!'
