Avivia Premiership Rugby Final - Saturday 30th May 2015

Newcastle Falcons Rugby Club have recently mentored and trained Hayton School children both in tag rugby and in maths, as part of the Aviva Tackling Numbers innovative school maths programme. As a result of their involvement, Year 4 children took part in a tag rugby tournament at Carlisle Rugby Club. The competition was between local schools from the Cumbria area and despite tough competition, Hayton School won the tournament.

Their amazing prize was an invitation to watch - and take part in - this year's Rugby Final at the Twickenham Stadium in London. In addition to watching the Saracens v Bath final, the Year 4 players also took part in a demonstration match in front of a huge crowd of 80,000 people.

Plus, together with over 300 children from schools across the country they were part of a Guinness World Record attempt - click here to find out more!
