Rugby is emerging as a popular sport for pupils at Newington community primary school in Ramsgate.
The Year 5/6 team is in training for the Thanet primary championships at Upton School in Broadstairs on Saturday, May 6.
In recent weeks the team has performed well in their own rugby festival and six nation’s tournament in April.
Head teacher Cliff Stokes said: “The team’s ability to collaborate and show zest in their sport really helped them to shine at these events and we look forward to the next big tournament.
“What is most pleasing is their desire to learn and improve, and the teamwork and sportsmanship that they show.”
