Students from across the Midlands have showcased their rugby skills and abilities during Dallaglio RugbyWorks’ Midlands Summer Rugby Tournament. The event, which was sponsored by St. Modwen Homes, was held in the grounds of co-sponsor Caterpillar’s Desford manufacturing facility, and welcomed 90 pupils from 10 Midlands schools.
The fun-filled day, which took place on Tuesday 2nd July, saw South Wigston High School crowned winners and they took home the coveted first place trophy. The tournament also welcomed ex-international players and coaches at Dallaglio RugbyWorks’, Aleki Lutui and Salesi Ma’afu, who offered support and guidance to the players as well as presenting awards on the day.
Dave Smith, Managing Director at St. Modwen Homes said:
“The work that Dallaglio RugbyWorks does in helping teenagers develop key skills is something we are proud to support, both through the funding of tournaments like these and by helping young people to learn more about careers in construction.
