Waldegrave School Christmas Magazine 2022

When our aspiring rugby players turned up for what they thought was a training session with other local schools little did they know they’d be meeting one of the most iconic teams in rugby!

Emilia and Lily tell us more:

“Walking into Teddington Rugby club we were greeted by cameras and lots of smiling faces. We were given black and white Adidas kit to wear and we all figured that we would be modelling for Adidas. Following a game of Rugby Netball we noticed a commotion - suddenly the All Blacks walked through the gate! Everyone scrambled to their feet to meet Beauden Barrett, Dalton Papli’i, Richie Mo’unga and Ardi Savea. We got to do drills and in the Q&A session we found out that: • They are looking forward to playing Ireland in the world cup • They want to eat lots of french food. • Their most nerve racking game was the recent Australia v New Zealand. • Richie Mo'unga was part of an unbeaten U11, U12, U13 squad. The day finished up with team photos with all of the players and them signing our t-shirts. While walking back to the rugby club many people got the chance to have selfies with them and even BeReals!”
