Community News Under-12s chasing Twickenham dream in Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup
Ahead of the Saints’ meeting with Gloucester this weekend, under-12 sides from around the region will be battling it out for the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup title and the chance to join under-11 champions Old Scouts in the Parade of Champions at May’s Aviva Premiership Final.
In all, 16 teams will take to the back pitches on the morning before the LV= Cup returns to Franklin’s Gardens, with the winners not only heading to Twickenham but also picking up their medals from Saints players on the main pitch during the half-time break of the evening’s game.
The under-11 and under-12 grassroots rugby festivals are part of a series of nationwide tournaments which provide aspiring young players with the opportunity to develop their skills in a professionally organised environment, in a fantastically run festival with their local Premiership Rugby club.
The Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup, now in its sixth year, has seen over 40,000 children take part from all over the country. So, get involved and support the young stars of your local clubs, in developing their skills, abilities and supporting them to participate in regular sporting activity.
Land Rover is committed to the development of rugby at grassroots level. This can be witnessed through their sponsorship of the Premiership Rugby Academy, as well as the provision of a Land Rover Discovery 4 to each of the Premiership Rugby clubs’ Community Departments. This ensures that Land Rover is always at the heart of rugby.
