FUTURE rugby stars were given the chance to learn from the very best on a two-day course.

Held at Pate's Grammar School on Thursday and Friday, professional coaches from Gloucester Rugby Club put the young rugby players through their paces.

Children aged from seven to 13 were taught using the most up-to-date techniques in the Junior Rugby Camp.

Cherry and Whites England-capped fullback Olly Morgan was on hand on Thursday to meet the young players.

A spokesman for the club said: "The course aims to develop core skills, including the basic principles of handling, such as decision making, tackle techniques, rucking, mauling and defensive systems, the principles of speed and agility, game analysis, and one of the most important aspects of the sport.
