The Saints Urban Rugby Squad left the national festival as Champions after victory over Wasps in the Sixways final on Wednesday afternoon.

The Urban Rugby Squad is a ground-breaking initiative run by Premiership Rugby and its clubs, helping 1,000 young people aged 14 to 16 from disadvantaged communities across England. 

In its first year, the scheme helped 778 young people and delivered 136 personal development workshops on topics such as anger management and sexual health.

The Saints' programme involves free rugby at a handful of community sites, with Jordan Letts conducting a weekly session with each of them as he tries to impact their lives.

Year two of Urban Rugby Squad is run in partnership with BT Sport’s The Supporters Club, the broadcaster’s initiative that aims to build a better world through sport, and Restart Rugby, the Official Charity of The Rugby Players’ Association (RPA).
