Earlier this season the Heath U12s won the Harlequins Land Rover Cup, fielding a combination team from all three of the Heath U12s squads (Trojans-Spartans-Vikings) and emerging victors against respected opponents from multiple clubs across Kent, Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire.

As a result the squad was invited up to Twickenham on Saturday, for an official presentation and to parade at half-time during the Rugby Premiership Final between Bath and Northampton, in front of a sell-out crowd at the home of rugby of 82,000.

More than 165 family and supporters from the club travelled with the U12 squad and it was a fantastic experience for the children; moreover everyone was fortunate to witness an absolute epic match!

At the same time, a team of Heath volunteers was kept busy at the South of England Show where the Club had a stand over all three days to encourage young people to try out rugby. Many boys and girls tried to master the passing man and there was a lot of interest in Heath’s Free taster session for girls age 9 to 15 taking place at Whitemans Green at 6pm on Wednesday, June 12.
