Billy Searle and Sione Faletau visited Clevedon School in Valley Road to give its under-14s team some top tips on how to improve their game.

The two players taught some basic passing drills and how to tackle while under pressure, before giving pupils the chance to play in some small sided games.

Matt Brown, a year nine student, said: “Even though the two players hadn’t had a lot of time to coach us, the drills were something that we would take away and practice.

“Overall the experience of the coaching was really good.

“We had a quick coaching session at the end and got to know how they got to Bristol and just general stuff about them.”

Bristol Rugby play in the RFU Championship, and are currently top of the table having won all seven games of the season so far.
