Driffield RFC take on a sports tour to the UK, Derby

  • 01-03-2013

    Driffield are bringing a small army down from east Yorkshire to partake in a a mixture of Teamlink's most popular options for a rugby tour to the UK.  The team will enjoy our Sporting Experience option in the form of Leicester Tigers RFC, battle it out in a tournament format against local teams Derby RFC and Chesterfield RFC.

    The team will depart from their club on Saturday morning and head to Oval Park, Welford Road Tigers training ground. The team will then be out in the more than capable hands of the Tiger's coaches who will put them through their paces on the training field. 

    After a much needed rest and clean-up the team will then take part in a Q&A session with the players and take a tour of the training facilities. Then it is off to Welford Road to catch the Leicester Tigers vs Sale Sharks premiership game, taking some of the spot-light from the players as they trot onto the pitch at half time to have a team photo.

    After the match they will depart for Jurys Inn Derby and spend the evening reminiscing about the action packed day.

    Sunday brings day two of their tour and they will get the chance to put the skills learnt on their Leicester Tigers Experience to the test as they take on stern opposition in the form of Derby RFC and Chesterfield RFC. The tournament is hosted at Teamlink's long lasting friends Derby RFC who will be more than welcoming hosts to their Yorkshire based counterparts.

    Mid-way through the day the U12 contingent will be leaving the tournament for an adventure around Wildpark Leisure, Derby. 

    From all at Teamlink we welcome Driffield RFC to Derby and we can't wait to hear your tour stories and see your tour photos.
