RUGBY UNION: Quadring pupils flying the flag for Leicester Tigers




Youngsters from Quadring Cowley and Brown's Primary School shared matchday with Leicester Tigers as they made up the guard of honour to welcome the teams at Welford Road.

Tigers hosted Harlequins in round 10 of the Gallagher Premiership as the group had the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of legends on the pitch in front of a 21,500-strong crowd.

Guard of honour groups fly the flag in the moments building up to kick-off and welcome both teams on to the pitch in front of a roar from the crowd. No one in the stadium gets as close to taking a pass, making a tackle or catching a high ball.

Anneka Luffman, a teacher at Quadring Primary School, accompanied the students on to the pitch to make up the guard of honour.

She said: “Everyone was really excited to be here, it’s mainly our tag rugby team from school and we have a lot of adults here too.

“We’re only a small village school so to do something like this is great for the kids.”
