London Wasps put Ipswich Rugby Club through their paces

AN impressive 40 eager youngsters benefited from professional coaching after London Wasps visited Ipswich Rugby Club’s youth section.

The Under-13s and 14s players took part in specialist quick-fire drills courtesy of the Wasps’ coaching development officers at Humber Doucy Lane.

Paul Rowland, youth and juniors chairman, said: “It is to their huge credit that these Wasps coaches came all this way to give us two hours of hard core coaching.

“It was great to hear them interacting and laughing with our boys while imparting knowledge and excellent skills that reinforces the work of our own dedicated age group coaches.

“Afterwards in the clubhouse, they stayed and chatted happily for a long time with our coaches, parents and players which only added to the sense of this being a really good event.”
