Ixworth Middle School with Nathan Hughes

On Thursday 12th December our Community Team welcomed Ixworth School from Bury St Edmunds to the London Wasps Training Ground for a bespoke rugby training session.

Twenty-four Yr7 and Yr8 students enjoyed a 90-minute coaching session from our community coaches as part of a trip which also saw the group visit Twickenham Stadium to watch the Cambridge v Oxford Varsity Match.

During the session, the boys worked on their handling techniques and decision-making skills through small-sided games. The session was further enhanced when some of our full-time academy players joined in the games and offered coaching and advice. After the session, the Ixworth students were shown around the training ground, presented with a signed London Wasps shirt and met London Wasps No.8 Nathan Hughes.

Nathan said after the visit, "It was great to meet the guys from Ixworth. I hope they enjoyed their coaching with our community boys and the trip to Twickenham."
