Southwold Under-11s squad travelled to the West Country for their inaugural tour – a total of 61 players and family members enjoying a fabulous weekend that will live long in the memory.

On Saturday morning, Bath Rugby hosted the team for a coaching session and a question and answer session with two young players. The team were then treated to goody bags from the club and foraged for lunch before the main event.

The under-11s then formed the guard of honour for the huge European Cup clash between Bath and Toulon, both sides packed with international stars, then watched a competitive and tense match that the visitors won 19-14.

After the match the Southwold team managed to bag a prime autograph spot, and starry-eyed boys nabbed signatures from the likes of Bryan Habana, Mathieu Basteureaud, Quade Cooper, George Ford and Anthony Watson.

The under-11s also managed to come away with a Toulon player’s shirt and one of the match balls.
