Ulster Rugby Getting Active

Ulster Rugby and sponsor Kingspan were doing their bit to spread the rugby message yesterday with a special training session at Kingspan Stadium for 100 students from four local schools.

Pupils from Tandragee Primary School, Mountnorris Primary School, St. Mary’s Primary School and The Royal School Armagh had won the right to attend as part of a staff competition at Kingspan where parents won the right to have the school’s where their children attended send boys and girls along.

That’s a sure-fire way to make it as a ‘cool’ parent.

Head Coach Dan McFarland was part of the Ulster rugby team that welcomed the kids to the stadium and took part in a coaching masterclass alongside star players Will Addison, Jordi Murphy and Louis Ludik.

After the action on the pitch, the players took part in a Q and A session with the children in a day that they will remember for a very long time.

Ulster have been active with the players since their return from the Rugby World Cup and Jacob Stockdale was among the players that took part in a Blind Taste Test of french food ahead of last weekend’s visit of Clermont Auvergne.
