Harlequins' Prop Will Collier talks you through the perfect line-out lift
After a number of years without competing in local competition, the school has reintroduced rugby as its main sporting focus and has achieved success in the HSBC emerging schools competition by reaching the regional finals at the first attempt. During an extensive question and answer session with the pair, students were left in no doubt the qualities they need to succeed in not just on the rugby field, but also in their studies as George and James explained the dedication and commitment required to play top class sport.
The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the first School Sports Personality of the Year Award to 12 year old Emilia Bjerke who is involved in the GB gymnastics programme and represented the school in the Borough School sports championships, narrowly beating Sprinter and Rugby player Jaedon Cooke.
The school really appreciated the attendance of the Harlequins players, particularly as they are involved in a busy pre-season programme readying themselves for the coming months challenging for the Guinness Premiership and know their words will have a lasting impression on the aspiring sportsmen and Women of Grey Court School.
