ST LAWRENCE Primary School from Shropshire and Balfour School from Brighton will play at Twickenham Stadium during one of England’s QBE Internationals. 

St Lawrence and Balfour progressed from the National Tag 2 Twickenham Finals Day at Rugby School this week and will now give a demonstration of Tag Rugby at Twickenham on November 29 when England face Australia in a QBE International.

They were among 24 schools from across the country who progressed to the National Tag 2 Twickenham Finals Day at Rugby School, the birthplace of the sport, from a series of local and regional festivals.

The RFU Primary School Programme is designed to encourage children to participate in rugby and is run in partnership with the national police children’s charity, Child Victims of Crime.

CVOC is an initiative to keep children safe which started Tag 2 Twickenham back in 2002. The charity funds the training of over 600 police staff a year to coach tag rugby in primary schools.

To support the festivals a police officer from each area is on hand to support the young talent, to promote CVOC’s Tackling Safety initiative and to continue building relationships within the community.

The Batt C of E Primary School from Oxford won the Core Values Award at National Finals Day for demonstrating the RFU’s Core Values of Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship.

The other schools involved in the National Tag 2 Twickenham Finals Day at Rugby School were: Bildon C of E, Berwick Middle School, Cadbury Heath Primary School, Coldfall Primary School, Edwalton School, Gawsworth Primary School, Havelock Junior School, Henleaze Junior School, Heron Primary School, John Hampden Primary, Legh Vale, Lincroft Middle School, Much Birch School, St Aloysius Primary School, The Hill Primary School, Trull Church of England VA Primary School, Wallace Fields School, Westfield School, Westleigh Junior School, Westley Middle School, Whistable Junior School.
