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.
Facilities to book on-line are available at www.gloucesterrugbyclub.com or bookings can be made by post with cheques made payable to 'Gloucester Rugby Club Ltd' addressed to the Community Dept, Gloucester Rugby Club, Kingsholm Rd, Gloucester, GL1 3AX .

Skipper for the day Aled Thomas praised his Gloucester team mates, especially the younger ones, for the way they took on a tough Ospreys outfit and emerged victorious in the LV= Cup on Saturday afternoon.
Gloucester will field a reshuffled side against the Ospreys in the LV= Cup this weekend, but Backs & Attack Coach Nick Walshe stressed that it's a great opportunity for everyone on duty on Saturday and that maintaining the recent winning run is very important.
Skipper Billy Twelvetrees told GRTV after the win in Brive that the game could have been a tough one to get up for, but that his Gloucester team mates did themselves proud on the night and got a big result.
Reflecting on the 31-20 victory in Brive on Thursday evening, Director of Rugby David Humphreys said that clinching a home European Rugby Challenge Cup quarter-final was the overall aim and duly achieved.
Gloucester Rugby and the Ospreys shared seven tries and 57 points in the LV= Cup at Kingsholm on Saturday. The Cherry and Whites came out on top and the club photographer captured the best of the action.
