Hampstead pupils train with international rugby star

Rugby players at a Hampstead school were treated to coaching tips from a Guinness Premiership-winning speedster.

Fijian international winger Michael Tagicakibau helped out, as Saracens Rugby Club’s academy put pupils from University College School’s under-14 squad through their paces in a coaching session on November 10.

At the end of the hard session, the children had the chance to get their hands on the Saracens Premiership trophy.

The Watford-based side is planning a move to Barnet Copthall and is awaiting revised planning permission for a new stadium.
