Year 3/4 Rugby Festival with London Broncos

Wandsworth School Games and London Broncos Rugby League Team provided the first ever Rugby League Festival for primary schools on Friday 11th March.

Fifteen schools and 146 children took part in the festival at Rosslyn Park Rugby Club. Children from Year 3/4 were able to participate in fun rugby activities led by the London Bronco's first team players. It was a fantastic experience for everyone involved.

The festival was led by former Broncos Academy player and Community Officer Max Savage with first-team players Dalton Grant, Oli Leyland, Bill Leyland, Rob Tuliatu, Max Allen and Sitiveni Moceidreke helping participants develop new skills in a fun and supportive environment.

The Broncos’ team mascot Buck was also on hand to pose for photos and join in the fun as part of Broncos Community Project’s commitment to inspiring people to reach their full potential and make new connections through the power of Rugby League.

London Broncos Community Manager John Keynes said the festival was a huge success and helped the club connect a new audience to Rugby League.

“It was excellent to see so many young faces trying Rugby League for the very first time,” said John. “The festival epitomised what Broncos Community Project aims to achieve by providing people with a platform to experience Rugby League in a supportive environment where they can develop individual and team skills and make friends.

Richard Siaw, PE Lead teacher for Penwortham Primary school, said, "It was amazing for all the children to take part in such a fun and inclusive event. The pandemic has been tough on children and meant they have missed out on taking part in festivals like this. Therefore, the focus on learning and developing new skills was perfect".

Nick Miller, School Games Organiser for Wandsworth said, "Thanks to London Broncos for their hard work and support in organising this event. It is great to develop a new working relationship with their community programme and look forward to linking up with them again in the future. Thanks also to Rosslyn Park for hosting the event. It is brilliant that our local sports clubs such as the Broncos and Rosslyn Park support our work and proivde amazing opportunities for our children in Wandsworth Schools"
