England Rugby Developing Player Programme U13 Trials


Matthew Houseman and Michael Sorby took part in England Rugby Developing Player Programme U13 trials on Sunday 2nd February.

Following nominations from the PE department at Outwood Academy Ripon and Ripon Rugby Club, Matthew, second row, and Michael, outside centre, did exceptionally well to be chosen from hundreds of nominations to take part in the trial. During the session the players took part in drills to assess the various key skills of rugby including handling and tackling before carrying out fitness tests including 30metre sprints. We wish Matthew and Michael well as they wait to find out whether they were successful.
