City Academy students play at Twickenham ahead of England rugby international

Eleven students from City Academy Norwich enjoyed a once in a lifetime experience on Sunday 26 February, as they played in a showcase 5-a-side touch rugby game at Twickenham ahead of England’s RBS 6 Nations fixture against Italy.

The Year 8 and Year 9 boys also formed part of the guard of honour that welcomed the international players on to the pitch before kick-off, where they remained during the national anthems, in front of 80,000 spectators and millions more watching at home.
