On Monday 27th November, Premiership Rugby star and Ex QE Student Jack Yeandle came to QE to deliver a Rugby Masterclass.
Jack led a session with our Rugby stars of the future during our Rugby Club, which is held every Monday 3:30-4:30. Jack also reminisced about the start of his Rugby playing career representing QE. Our students found it fascinating to hear him speak of the last game that he played for the school, on the Barnfield pitch against Torrington school, as a Full back rather than his current position as a hooker! It was such an incredible privilege having him come into his old school and inspire our students.
In what were horrendously muddy conditions, Jack looked like he really enjoyed leading the sessions and he stressed how getting muddy is what the sport of Rugby is all about! The PE & Outdoor Ed department send their thanks to Jack and his team and we hope he’ll come back soon!
