Former international coaches students

SONNING’S Reading Blue Coat School’s 1st XV rugby squad had a rare opportunity to train with England attacking skills coach

SONNING’S Reading Blue Coat School’s 1st XV rugby squad had a rare opportunity to train with England attacking skills coach Mike Catt on Monday.

In preparation for the Blue Coat team’s NatWest Cup fifth round clash against RGS High Wycombe, Nick Davis of Clydesdale Bank helped to organise the training session with former England and London Irish player Catt, who is a sporting ambassador for the bank’s Ambassador programme.

Catt donned his rugby boots and joined the squad and their coaches, Nicholas Matenga and Steve Roberts, for 45 minutes’ training.

After the session the students had an opportunity to chat first-hand to the England coach before he gave a talk to the squad.
