England Rugby legend Jason Leonard comes to Camelot.

3 weeks ago By Tim Wynne-Jones

The Senior players enjoyed a hard session listening to a master.

After months of planning and anticipation, the England & Lions great Jason Leonard came to Hemel Hempstead (Camelot) RUFC last Thursday night to take a 2 hour Seniors training session along with Club coach Sam Townsend.

Jason, who played well over 300 1st Class games for Saracens and Harlequins, as well as being capped 114 times for England and 5 times for the British Lions, obviously brought a wealth of experience to Camelot.

The Club were lucky enough for one of its sponsors, Chris Topping of Jay City Finance, to be at a School of Hard Knocks Charity Evening (www.schoolofhardknocks.org.uk) where Jason had offered a 2 hour training session as an Auction Prize to the highest bidder.

Jason’s session concentrated on the key set piece areas of the Scrum and Lineout where he imparted a number of ‘tricks of the trade’ to the eager audience.

Unfortunately for the members who had gathered in the bar hoping to meet him, Jason’s busy schedule meant a quick change of footwear in the car park before he headed off, as he had an early start the next day with a speaking engagement in Blackpool.
