On Tuesday 2nd November, Northampton High School were delighted to welcome the New Zealand Rugby Union Ladies’ team to use their facilities for their latest training session, as they continue to prepare ahead of this Sunday’s clash against England.
The Hardingstone-based school were overjoyed to host the six-time world champion Black Ferns, who took part in a training session on their state-of-the-art astro turf, with their sights firmly set on victory ahead of the weekend’s highly anticipated clash. It was also a marvellous opportunity for some of the school’s students to witness elite-level athletes perform up close and in person, with the Year 10 students having the privilege of watching the closing drills of the intricate session. Despite a taxing work out, the squad was more than happy to oblige in a socially-distanced photo with pupils, and even gifted the school with a squad signed ball as a memento of their visit.
With their training nearly complete, attentions for the Black Ferns are now solely on this weekend’s clash with England on Sunday 7th November, taking place at Northampton Saints’ Franklin’s Gardens. For tickets and more information, please visit: northamptonsaints.co.uk
