Edinburgh Players Visit Knox
Knox Pupils coached by idols
Knox S1 School of Rugby pupils had an amazing experience on Thursday when, Allan (Chunk) Jacobsen and Perry (Pezza) Parker, popped in to pass on some rugby tips.
The 'pros' were there to promote the S1 School of Rugby Festival which is taking place at Murrayfield later in the month. This festival will see the other SOR schools play each other in a mini tournament. Perry led the pupils in a line-out session and Chunk took a scrum session with them then everyone headed in to the warmth where the pupils gave the players a grilling in a question and answering session.
After the questions (some very interesting ones) there was a photo opportunity and the pupils had a chance to get the players signatures on what ever they could, school bags, shirts and even a pair of dirty jogging trousers!!
Big thanks to Edinburgh Rugby, Chunk, Perry, Mrs S Ingham (Head Teacher) and our very own Gav Harper who was there on official Edinburgh Rugby press duties. Oh and also Keith Wallace, who appeared to see how the SOR pupils were getting on.
Photos will be appearing soon.
