Forwards v Backs: Harlequins take the Aviva Tackling Numbers maths challenge


Who is better at maths – forwards or backs? Aviva teamed up with Premiership Rugby to challenge Harlequins players to take an Aviva Tackling Numbers maths test with a difference.

Harlequins fly-half Ben Botica and second row James Chisholm took on the challenge to answer three tricky Aviva Tackling Numbers maths questions in one minute whilst being distracted by 30 children from St Michael & St Martin Catholic Primary School in Hounslow. Former Harlequins star Will Greenwood was question master with two assistants from the school.

Watch the film to find out who emerged victorious and left with the winner’s trophy under his arm.

Think you can do better than the Quins players? Tackle a maths test at for the chance to win tickets to the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final at Twickenham on Saturday 28 May.

Aviva Tackling Numbers is an exciting programme in partnership with Premiership Rugby and the 12 clubs that makes learning about numbers more fun and rewarding. It is delivered in schools across the country and available online. Aviva is helping 7-9 year olds put foundations in place for better financial skills later in life.
