A CROYDON school have been taking tips from England legend Jason Robinson after the World Cup winner gave them a coaching masterclass at a rugby sevens tournament.

Cumnor House School were taking part in the annual Rosslyn Park HSBC National School Sevens when Robinson stepped in to take their warm-up and pass on some last minute advice.

Robinson was impressed by what he saw and hopes those who played for Cumnor House will now be inspired to carry on playing rugby.

He said: "I know just speaking to the kids that they are so excited about this every year and, when you think the likes of Ben Gollings, Josh Lewsey, Lawrence Dallaglio, and I think Will Carling have played at the Rosslyn Park Sevens, it just shows what you can go on to.

"There is no better place to come and watch young rugby talent. Hopefully, they will keep progressing and they will keep getting stronger as a team and as individuals, and even if they don't go on to that higher level it's all about enjoying rugby.

"The emphasis is on attacking, it's all about the spaces, it's all about creating space, it's all about speed.

"When you go to a sevens tournament you see lots of tries, and that for me is what it is all about."

Cumnor House pupil Max Summers, 12, was thrilled to meet one of his heroes.

"It was incredible to have a rugby training session with one of the best rugby players in the world," he said.

"He is a really good role model. It was a massive privilege to have that done by him, so I was really happy."
