First XV players in Leicester Tigers Academy squad

News > First XV players in Leicester Tigers Academy squad

We were delighted to see two players from our First XV Rugby Team play in Leicester Tigers’ winning Academy squad against Worcester Warriors Academy.

Both Callum and George started in the game which turned out to be a thriller. George scored a try in what was a very tight match. Leicester held on until the end of the game with determined defence, despite Worcester trying everything to force a draw. Leicester left Sixways, the home of Worcester Warriors, victorious. The final score was Worcester Warriors 28, Leicester Tigers 35. 

Gresham’s maintain close links with Leicester Tigers and are proud to see both players regularly included in the starting line up for their academy squad. At school, the players benefit from the experience of Director of Rugby, Ben Pienaar. Ben has a wealth of experience both in playing and coaching the game. He attended Gresham’s alongside the Youngs brothers and represented Leicester Tigers and London Welsh during his playing career.

Congratulations to both George and Callum.
