The Japanese rugby team presented prizes at an U11 Rugby Tournament for local schools

Warwick School hosts Japanese Rugby Team

Warwick School was delighted to host the Japanese Rugby Team during the Rugby World Cup 2015

Posted by Hannah Oakman | October 29, 2015 | Sports & Leisure

The school was selected as one of the 41 Official Team Bases for the Rugby World Cup 2015, after an open tender process which started in May 2013.  

The Japanese Team used the outstanding facilities of Warwick School from 25 September until the 9 October. The Japanese players attended training sessions at Warwick School, held in the sports hall, the gym or on the first team pitch. Whilst their focus was on training and match performance the players found some time to talk to the boys at school and sign autographs. They also presented prizes at an U11 Rugby Tournament for local schools. The highlight of their visit for the school was a training session with the Japan’s Team coaches, attended by a large number of Warwick School rugby players.

Mark Nasey, Director of Rugby, Warwick School, said: “It has been a pleasure to be part of the Rugby World Cup 2015, the third largest sporting event in the world and to host the Japanese Team. Japan have indeed, been one of the teams of the tournament with their win over South Africa and a record - breaking domestic TV audience of 25m for their match against Samoa. Our older rugby players were truly privileged to attend a training session with the six coaches from the Japanese Team, including Head Coach Eddie Jones.
