Northamptonshire Rugby Alliance

Over the past few weeks, the Northamptonshire & District Alliance have been conducting
rugby trials for the Under 13 age group. The trials were run over a period of 2 weekends and involved 16 Rugby clubs and their selected players.Selection for the squad was based on a combination of the assessment of rugby and athletic potential demonstrated during the trial days. This was a conducted through a series of position specific drills, followed by
5 small games of rugby. In addition, game sense, attitude and leadership were all assessed. A combination of all of these attributes led to final selection decisions being made.The trials were conducted by 4 highly experienced coaches from 3 clubs within the Alliance and I am delighted to report that both Harry Fellingham and Jack Lloyd, members
of the school 1st XV, were successful in being selected for the squad for 2014-2015 season.
I would like to personally congratulate these boys on achieving a place in the Alliance and I look forward to hearing of their progress throughout the course of the season. Beachborough is certainly very proud of them!
