Harlequins’ Robson anticipating day to remember for youngsters

GeorgeRobson15SB1005

Harlequins’ George Robson believes the youngsters set to strut their stuff in this weekend’s Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup are in for a day to remember.

An U11 and U12 event will be hosted by Harlequins at Farnham Rugby Club on Sunday, just 24 hours after their Aviva Premiership Rugby clash with London Irish.

Launched during the 2008-09 season, the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup is the first national grassroots tournament officiated by Premiership Rugby.

Over 7,000 children take part in the competition, with the winners from each festival taking part in the Parade of Champions at the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final at Twickenham in May, where they are presented to a sell-out crowd at half-time.

Blackheath U11s and Chichester U12s were the two teams to book their spot at Rugby HQ through last year’s Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup and Robson insists the class of 2015 will have just as memorable a day this time around too.

“I still remember playing at that age and loving my rugby even then, so I can’t wait to hear how they get along. I hope the children will enjoy the game like I did,” Robson said.

"It's so good that Aviva Premiership Rugby clubs run these types of events – I’m sure there will be some of the next generation of Harlequins players on show.

"It's crucial that the event is also supported by sponsors such as Land Rover – junior tournaments are the foundations of rugby in the community, and something we should be really proud of."

Land Rover supports grassroots rugby and provides the opportunity for over 7,000 youngsters to take part in the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup each season. Keep up to date with the latest Land Rover rugby activity by following @LandRoverRugby on Twitter.
