A Roehampton rugby club’s young stars emerged victorious in a national competition in Twickenham last month.

Rosslyn Park’s under-12s defeated the Worcester Warriors 41-35 en route to their trophy in the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup on October 28.

With Harlequins RFC’s Dave Ward and Kyle Sinckler looking on, they will also be appearing at the Aviva Premiership final’s half-time parade next May.

One of the players in Rosslyn Park’s winning team will also be presented with the most valuable player (MVP) award.

King’s House School pupil Frank Hall, 11, said: “I’m really happy about winning the tournament and it was a really good group effort, everyone on the team did well and I was lucky enough to be captain of the team.

“We won the semi-final but it was a bit of a surprise, [and] I’m really happy we managed to score so many tries after having a tight semi-final.

“I think going to Twickenham next year will be really cool, I’ve been to Twickenham before when I went the World Cup but I’ve always wanted to go to the [Aviva] Premiership final so I am very happy.”

Frank has played the sport since he was eight, including in Singapore, and now plays for Rosslyn Park since arriving back in the United Kingdom.

He added: “Rugby is always really fun but it’s also quite competitive. I think tournaments are more fun because you get to play more game and it’s always tighter.

“After a couple games everyone gets tired, so it gets more intense.”

More than 30 under-11 and under-12s were at the tenth annual grassroots rugby festival and it has seen over 70,000 children compete in it to-date, according to Land Rover.

Sinckler, an England and British & Irish Lions prop, said: “Me and Dave [Ward] have come out to have a look at the local talent and it’s been a great day out.

“The main thing is enjoying it and you can see the kids are happy and it’s all about sportsmanship of the game and playing in the right way.

“You can see them all doing three cheers for each other.

“It’s about coming out on a Saturday or Sunday and giving it your best. If you win, you win. If you lose, so be it. If you gave it your all and had a good time [then], you’ve got to make memories with your friends.

“Without grassroots rugby there is no elite level. If you speak to any guy in any professional team, they all started at grassroots level.”

Land Rover is celebrating its ‘Testimonial Season’, ten years of the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup.

The national series of grassroots rugby festivals is testament to Land Rover’s continued support of grassroots rugby through its ‘We Deal in Real’, according to the car manufacturer.
