Pride of place at the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final

It is not every day you get to visit a packed-out Twickenham Stadium for one of the biggest club rugby finals in the world, but that’s exactly what this season’s Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup youngsters will be doing.

While Saracens and Exeter Chiefs battle it out to become Aviva Premiership Rugby Champions, the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup under-11 and under-12 teams from festivals across the country will be watching from the stands.
 
It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the young rugby players to soak up the atmosphere at the season finale while receiving the ultimate reward for their hard work over the season.
 
The youngsters will also be given the opportunity to participate in a Q&A session with a Land Rover Ambassador and have speeches from previous Rugby World Cup winners Martin Johnson and Lewis Moody.
 
Ivybridge under-11s are attendees from the Exeter Chiefs’ festival, with 10-year-old Ed Slater eagerly anticipating his team’s big day out.
 
"We're so excited to go to Twickenham," he said. "You can't really put the feeling into words.

"Everybody put everything into that final game and thankfully we came out on top. It was a tense and really hard game but we persevered through it.

"I came off with an injury but all the other guys stepped up and played their part."
 
Meanwhile, one of the under-12’s sides ready to enjoy the day are the team from Worthing RFC who were recognised after they shone at the Saracens’ festival at Allianz Park.

Worthing under-12’s Reece Daly said: "Coming into the tournament we 100 percent thought we had a chance of doing well.
 
"It was great that we did and being able to play at Allianz Park was amazing and now we get to go to Twickenham!"
 
Both Slater and Daly starred under the watchful eyes of Saracens’ and Exeter Chiefs’ players on their respective days, with the professionals full of admiration for their commitment.
 
Exeter Chiefs’ Sam Skinner watched his boyhood side Topsham progress through the group stages at Exeter, and believes he saw several players with huge potential.
 
"When I was young and playing for Topsham I used to love coming to these tournaments," he said.
 
"This is a great opportunity for all these kids to enjoy playing rugby against new teams, and to give it their best on the pitch.
 
"Days like this make rugby really fun, which is the most important thing. It is all very relaxed, not too stressful, and you can see how much the kids are enjoying it."
 
Meanwhile, Nathan Earle believes those involved in the Saracens’ Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup can only benefit from the day.
 
"Playing at a tournament like this run by an Aviva Premiership Rugby club will be really good motivation for them," explained Earle.
 
"You don’t think about the bigger picture at that age – it is all about going out and enjoying yourself.
 
"Hopefully that love for the game will carry on into adolescence and maybe some of them can even go professional."
