Last year, Gorseland teamed up with the Ipswich Rugby Club and Suffolk Sport to stage a Mini Rugby World Cup. The local primary schools were invited to represent a chosen nation at the tournament with a team for both boys and girls.

Speaking on the day, Mr Jackson expressed how important the sports premium is in bringing a new sport to schools."Using the sports premium to train the teachers so that actually Tag Rugby is something that happens in schools more regularly has meant that today we have had a very successful tournament with just under 100 children playing a sport that would not normally play." 

Below is a video produced by Suffolk Sport showcasing the event.
