YOUNGSTERS at Larkrise, Oxford, had the thrill of seeing the Guinness Premiership Trophy on show at their Boundary Brook Road primary school.

The most prestigious piece of silverware in English club rugby was brought along by London Wasps community rugby coaches Ben Smiley and Matt Bray.

They came to the school to deliver Wasps Wooden Spoon TAG rugby coaching programme.

The coaching session introduced the children to the concept of tagging and dodging by playing games that involved the use of physical literacy skills.

The last game of the day saw rugby balls introduced so the youngsters had the chance to experience running with the ball to prepare for a future session.

After the session, the pupils were given the opportunity to see the trophy and learn how Wasps won it at Twickenham in front of 81,500 people.

Smiley said: "The children were thrilled to see the trophy. Many of them had actually followed London Wasps' progress towards the end of the season after they learned that we would be coaching them.

"I was very impressed by their knowledge of London Wasps, with several asking how Danny Cipriani was.

"What's more, their enthusiasm for London Wasps continued onto the pitch, where they were as keen as mustard to play and to learn."
