British Lions League visit Linwood College

Jade Cull —

With the British Lions vs Kiwi's League game being in Christchurch, some of the Lions players took time out of their day to come and visit some students at Linwood College.

On Thursday the 7th November, four players from the British Lions League team came in and spent the morning talking to and running drills for some students at Linwood College.

Players in attendance were Lachlan Coote, George Williams, Blake Austin and Jake Trueman.

The students got to know the players through the Q and A session at the start,  with some really well thought out questions asked and a bit of banter about games that the students had watched them play against the kiwis. This was followed by a skills session outside, which the league players ran with the help of Dom Tala from Canterbury Rugby League.

At the conclusion of the session the students had the opportunity to get signatures and photo's with the players.
