We took some pros along for a training session at Parmiter's School, as part of the Lucozade Sport Kit-Out Project. Here's what they learned...
WE TEAMED up with the Lucozade Sport Kit-Out Project earlier this season to give away £3000-worth of kit, nutrition and training advice, and it was Parmiter’s School in Hertfordshire who won our competition.
The school’s first XV are leading a leading light for schools rugby in the state sector, with the younger pupils desperate to get involved in their successful team, instead of joining the football ranks.
Acting Head of PE and Games Bradley Hughes said: “Our 1st XV has been pivotal over the last few years as we have looked to develop rugby at the school. We have created an environment where students are extremely proud to represent our 1st XV and they provide exceptional role models to our younger students, often leading training sessions for our younger boys.”
We took Brett Davison, a former England Sevens and Wasps physio/head of performance, and Lucozade Sport’s Sports Scientist Tom Brownlee down to the school, to take a training session with the first XV and give them some nutrition advice. Check out these videos to see what they learned on the day…
