Lemington Riverside 'take over' at Newcastle Thunder
6th February 2022
It was a 'Super Sunday' today as Lemington Riverside children 'took over' at Newcastle Thunder Rugby Club for their first home game of the season against Batley Bulldogs at Kingston Park Stadium.
We have worked in partnership with Newcastle Thunder for almost three years now with coaches from the rugby club visiting our school every week delivering coaching sessions and an after school club.
Today was our opportunity to visit the home of Thunder - and what a great experience it was!
A healthy number of pupils and parents and grandparents made the journey to Kingston Park Stadium, many travelling on our LRPS coach. Upon arrival, the children enjoyed a question and answer session with one of the Thunder rugby stars, before taking to the field to form a guard of honour as the two teams entered the pitch. At half time, the children played a game of rugby on the pitch itself!
A superb day all round for our Lemington Riverside community - we thank Newcastle Thunder for being superb hosts and look forward to our continued partnership.
