The coaches arrived at the school after a short drive from the hotel but they had two extra coaches on board to help out with the session. Harlequins Director of Rugby Conor O'Shea was on the bus first closely followed by former Scottish international, Gavin Hastings.
Both Conor and Gavin had been at the media launch that morning to launch the junior rugby festival which kicks-off on Friday.
The plan at VDEC was to re-visit the coaching they received from the team last season to see how far they had developed in that year. Each coach took a group and it was clear to see the improvement from all the players.
There was a nice surprise about 30 minutes into the session. Sedbergh school dropped in for a joint training session with the VDEC pupils. The Sedbergh players joined in with all the groups and integrated really well.
One particular group ended up playing a conditioned game of touch rugby against the players from the English school. It could possibly be the first international of any kind between the UAE and England.
