Gloucester's international rugby stars will be joining more than two hundred young players next week when the Kingsholm club kicks off its half-term rugby camps (14-18 February).
England internationals Henry Paul and James Simpson-Daniel and Samoa's Terry Fanolua, as well as a host of other Gloucester favourites will be at the half term rugby camps sponsored by Green Lane Land Rover.
The camps take place at Oxstalls School, Gloucester (14-15 February), Cheltenham Rugby Club (16 February) and Cirencester Rugby Club (17-18 February). The camps have proved very popular this season and offer youngsters the chance to work on their rugby skills and meet the Club's star players.
Paul, Simpson-Daniel and Fanolua will be joined by the likes of Alex Brown, Nathan Mauger, Jake Boer, Adam Eustace and Alex Page over the course of the week.
All camps are aimed at boys and girls aged 7-14, of all abilities, and spaces are still available on all three camps. Walk-ups will be welcomed on the day but on a first come, first served basis so participants are advised to book early.
The daily sessions will run from 10am-3pm with qualified coaches covering a host of rugby skills.
The price of each two-day camp is £33 with the one day at Cheltenham priced at £17. There are discounts available for members of the Junior Gloucester Crew and junior members of Cheltenham and Cirencester rugby clubs.
