Students Coached by Tigers Stars
Stamford School’s First XV players were put through their paces by members of the Leicester Tigers last week. The boys enjoyed a session delivered by Tigers legend and academy coach Brett Deacon and also Head Skills coach at the academy Tosh Askew. The boys looked at decision making and distribution as well as some defensive work around the tackle area. The session must have been a success as the First XV secured their fifth win in five games away to Bedford Modern on Saturday.
First XV Coach David Laventure said: “It’s great for the boys to get fresh input and some different voices. It’s a very simple game which was the message that came through from the session, something we are always trying to reinforce with the players.”
