Kenilworth book spot at the home of rugby

KENILWORTH Rugby Club under-12s starlet Tom Miles admits he cannot wait to return to Twickenham after he helped his side secure a place at Rugby HQ with success in the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup.

More than 7,000 children will have participated over the course of the campaign in the national grassroots competition as they aim to secure a coveted spot in the ‘Parade of Champions’ at half-time of the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final in May.

One of those much sought after positions has gone to Kenilworth under-12s after they produced some stunning displays on a sun-bathed day of rugby at the home of London Welsh on Sunday.

The Warwickshire outfit went unbeaten in the pool stages, before edging a physical semi-final with Oxford RFC and going on to beat Chinnor 2-0 in a breathless final.

And after receiving his winner’s medal Miles explained why he enjoys competing at Land Rover Premiership Rugby events so much.

“We are so pleased to have won the tournament, especially because the final match was a really hard contest.” the 12-year-old King Henry VIII School student said.

“We played with some really quick hands to get the tries which was crucial, and we’re really happy to have played well all day.

“We won one of these events last year as well, so to come back and win again is really nice.

“I’m massively looking forward to being at the Premiership final. I’m a Northampton Saints fan and I was at the final when they edged it last year – it would be amazing to see them lift the trophy at Twickenham two years in a row.”

Land Rover supports grassroots rugby and provides the opportunity for over 7,000 youngsters to take part in the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup each season. Keep up to date with the latest Land Rover rugby activity by following @LandRoverRugby on Twitter.
