On Sunday 20th October, our friends at Oswestry Rugby Club as part of their junior festival, joined forces with Oswestry based charity The Movement Centre. The aim? To take on and attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the "Largest Rugby Union Lesson"!
In total, around 1,200 participants from clubs all across the county including some from our very own Telford Hornets, came together in an attempt to not only break, but smash the current record.
Tokai University RFC & Rugby Family (JAPAN) hold the current record with 602 people taking part in the Largest Rugby Union Lesson.
Participants took part in a half hour coaching lesson by Alex Murphy (Former player for Cardiff & Newport Gwent).
Also in attendance was our very own former Hornet player & England U20's Kai Owen.
The event was certainly a great deal of fun, and it certainly looked like everyone enjoyed taking part.
Telford Hornets U11's had the privilege of meeting a wonderful young man and recipient of the great work carried out by The Movement Centre, Stanley Vickery.
Sue Austin (Chief Reporter @ Shropshire Star) kindly allowed us use of the photo of our U11's with Stanley and his father David @ Oswestry Festival.
Sue went on to say: "Your lads were brilliant with little Stan, when they were shouting 'Go Stan' it was just brilliant!" - Stanley really did relish this moment!
It's always good to hear positive feedback and kind words about our members, whilst they are out representing our club.
A big thank you to all involved and of course for our invite to take part in such a great opportunity.
Now the waiting game begins as Oswestry awaits confirmation of if we have managed to break the current record.
