London Irish held their exciting under 11 and under 12 grassroots tournament, the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup at Reading Abbey RFC this weekend.
The Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup is a nationwide tournament for under 11 and under 12 teams. The ground-breaking tournament was the first of its kind to be officiated by Premiership Rugby and is run in conjunction with all 12 Premiership Rugby clubs.
The youngsters that attend will take part in a series of matches against clubs from their local area. Professional players will also come along to provide coaching tips and the opportunity for the aspiring players to meet their heroes. All triumphant teams will represent their Premiership Rugby club at the Parade of Champions at the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final in May.
After the continued success of the past five seasons, in which over 40,000 aspiring young players have taken part in festivals all over the country, we are looking forward to seeing more young stars develop their skills at this year's festivals.
