Leeds Rugby Foundation and Leeds City Council gear up for RLWC 2013

Leeds Rugby Foundation and 14 Primary Schools from across Leeds are gearing up for an action-packed Tag Rugby World Cup Festival which will take place at South Leeds Academy this coming Friday.

Rugby League World Cup (RLWC) Festival, which will run from 10am-2:30pm, will be aided by Leeds City Council who are helping to promote RLWC action in Leeds ahead of the upcoming competition later this year.

On the day of the festival, each Primary School will be allocated a RLWC country and will compete in a World Cup style Tag Rugby tournament.

The children competing will also look to impress Leeds Rhinos legend Keith Senior and former Aussie NRL star Corey Payne who will both be keeping tabs on the action.

There will also be a cultural spin on the event with selected children from each Primary School giving an educational style presentation about their given country.

Not only that, there will be a cheerleading display, a haka faceoff, as well as a Tug-of-war, a meeting with the local police force and photo opportunities alongside the RLWC trophy, mascot and the one and only – Ronnie the Rhino.

Stay tuned for the review of, what is sure to be, an enthralling day in the post-days after Friday’s eagerly anticipated event.
