A total of 45 enthusiastic young rugby players took part in the latest Cornish Pirates ‘Coaching Clinic’ that took place at the Mennaye Fields last Saturday, when the Cornish Pirates also hosted league leaders London Irish in the RFU Championship.
Aged from under 8s to under 12s, as well as the coaching the children representing various Cornish clubs had the chance to quiz Cornish Pirates players on everything from lifestyle to favourite moment on the rugby pitch!
Next on the schedule, as usual, was the Guard of Honour with the atmosphere building from the near sell-out crowd. Two mascots, young Liam and Thomas, were chosen for having displayed the Core Values of Rugby (Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship) throughout the clinic.
Also, at half-time, the youngsters played on the main Mennaye Field pitch.
Finally, with exclusive access to the players the children post-match had the opportunity to get their heroes’ autographs, with credit to both sets of players for once again more than happily responding.
Sam Teasdale, Cornish Pirates’ Community Engagement Manager, commented:
This was a particularly enjoyable day for everyone involved – coaches and parents and especially the children.
