Gloucester's young supporters will have the chance to learn all the latest rugby skills from the Premiership club's players at the annual Junior Gloucester Crew open day (10am-1pm, Thurs 31 March).
Members of the Junior Gloucester Crew, the membership scheme for all young Gloucester Rugby Club supporters, are invited to Kingsholm to meet their heroes and take part in a number of interactive sessions run by the star players.
The day kicks off at 10am (Thurs 31 Mar) at Gloucester's home ground and will finish at 1pm. Players will coach several key elements of the game including passing, kicking, agility runs, tackling, line-outs and scrums, and lots more!
