The Bath Rugby Community team recently held a kicking masterclass, which saw first team players George Ford, Ollie Devoto, Gavin Henson and Peter Stringer in attendance to pass on their expertise to 30 very excited 13-18 year olds.
With a wealth of knowledge and experience on hand, the children listened intently as George and Ollie instructed on the fine art of goal kicking ,Gavin focused on accuracy and kicking out of hand, whilst Peter made box kicking look ridiculously easy!
Following the hour long session, the children and players gathered in the Clubhouse for a Q&A and to get those all important autographs and pictures! A great evening was rounded off with food and a Bath Rugby goodie bag for everyone who attended.
Jack Howden, Bath Rugby Community Coach commented; “Tonight has been fantastic. The children had a great time and were really buzzing about the prospect of taking to the Rec with their heroes! Kicking is such a technical skill that requires a lot of practice and everyone here received invaluable advice from players at highest level of the game.”
