On Tuesday 13 November, Gerry MacCleery, from Leinster Rugby Club, European Champions, visited the Lady Elizabeth Secondary School to work his magic with the children during their PE lesson and give them a taste of the fastest growing sport in Spain! During the day, the students, boys and girls, took part in passing and running activities and finished with a competitive match of Touch Rugby, leaving the students wanting more! Gerry attended the school as part of a Community Programme by Xabia Aguiles Rugby, a fast growing local rugby team in Javea which caters for boys and girls from the ages of 6 to 15 years old. Their values of respect, sportsmanship and team work means that anyone, of any size or ability is welcome!
