Try rugby sessions

THE next generation of potential Jonny Wilkinsons will get their chance to impress at training sessions starting this week.

Hartlepool Rovers is planning training sessions between 10am and 2pm on Thursday and Friday for those interested in trying out the sport.

The free sessions are available for both girls and boys, aged from seven to 18 years.

Fully qualified coaches will lead the way.

Organisers have described it as a chance for people to make friends while staying healthy and active through playing rugby.

There will be lots of games and prizes, and those interested are advised to turn up with suitable clothing, a packed lunch and drink at the Hartlepool Rovers, ground, in West View Road.
