Dallaglio RugbyWorks is an intensive, long-term skills development programme based on rugby, through which we aim to get teenagers outside of mainstream education into sustained education, employment or training.

"With the sun shining, schools arriving and the pitch set up, it was a great start to our third and final tournament of this academic year." East Midland's Coach Andy writes about the day.

There were a total of 5 schools in attendance who all picked their team colours, warmed up and cracked on with the games. With the weather being so hot it wasn’t easy however, all the young people performed incredibly well and gave 100% effort in each and every match they played.

Alongside the high quality of skill being exhibited during the games, the real highlight for me and the other staff members was the level of sportsmanship, team work and commitment each and every young person displayed. This has been an ongoing progression throughout the year and was such a fitting environment and day for all of that hard work and progression to be demonstrated.

We had the pleasure to welcome our CEO Rachel who came to watch all the teams play alongside a special guest Richard McKay who is our key partner within the East Midlands region. We were delighted that he stayed for the duration of the tournament and even presented the awards at the end.

I want to say a massive thank you to all the teachers who came to the day, provided transport and support for their young people, all the staff who came from different areas to help out and make the event happen but a huge thank you to all the young people who turned up in the heat, played their hardest and showed how much they have developed in the space of a year.
