Once again London Irish are hosting the ever popular Premiership Rugby Land Rover Cup tournament.
Last year's tournament was a great success, with 7,650 Under 12s and Under 13s teams travelling from a mixture of destinations to participate in this tournament. This festival mirrors the nation-wide tournament where Land Rover works with Premiership Rugby and utilises all 12 premiership clubs to host this fantastic day- it really is a great event to get involved with!
What is the Land Rover cup?
This is a FREE tournament specifically for U12’s and U13’s teams, to be held at Reading Abbey Rugby Club on 15th November. Squads are made up of 16 players per team, so there is a chance for lots of individuals to get involved. All teams will play within a group stage before progressing into Cup and Plate competitions.
Even the parents get a fantastic day out, with Land Rover and Premiership will be handing out free hot drinks throughout the day to keep warm whilst being able to watch some excellent rugby.
Within this tournament, teams and players can expect to take part in a series of matches against a range of other clubs. Throughout the day professional premiership players will attend and offer coaching tips and advice for aspiring players.
In addition to this, players will receive medals and London Irish goody bags for signing up. The winners of each group will also receive a London Irish Land Rover Cup trophy which they can take back to their club house to show off with pride. Just to prove that winning isn’t everything, there will be ‘The Spirit Of Rugby’ prize to be given to the team who shows the most fair play.
