Rhino Schools Competition returns to the Varsity Match for 2018

17 Apr 2018

The Varsity Match has once again teamed up with Rhino to give schools the chance to win a rugby skills coaching session with the England Coaching Team at Twickenham Stadium.

Schools that book trips to The Varsity Match for 20 or more pupils will be entered into a free prize draw to win one of four special coaching clinics at the stadium in-between the women’s and men’s Varsity Matches on Thursday 6 December 2018.

School girls and boys will get a taste of the national team’s approach to the game at the annual clash between Oxford and Cambridge at Twickenham on a specialist Rhino-Turf pitch with Rhino training balls and equipment.

Previous years have seen lucky competition winners meet and train with England Head Coach Eddie Jones, England Pathway Coach Russell Earnshaw and England’s 2003 World Cup-winning captain Martin Johnson.

Commenting on the initiative, Rhino CEO Reg Clark said: “We are proud to continue to support this initiative to be encouraging as many schools as possible to enjoy a Varsity Match day at Twickenham and to win an amazing coaching experience.”

The Varsity Match Co-ordinator Jeremy Macklin said: “We are delighted to continue this competition for the third successive year and we would love to welcome as many schools as possible to The Varsity Match to watch the Battle of the Blues.

“The Varsity Match is often the first time school children get to visit the home of England rugby and this will make an extra special day for those taking part in the training sessions.”

All schools that book trips of 20 pupils or more by Thursday 31 May will be entered into the first prize draw for the first of four winners.

Further winners will then be announced in July, September and October 2018. Discounted school tickets are now available for just £10 per junior which includes entry to both the Women’s and Men’s Varsity Matches. Plus one adult goes free for every 10 pupils booked!
