To celebrate one year until the start of the 2015 Rugby World Cup, to be hosted in the UK, the RFU organised a special event at Twickenham Stadium, on Friday 12 September 2014. People from across the country were invited to attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest rugby scrum (previously 946 people). Four of our Rugby Ambassadors were welcomed to join the attempt.
The scrum was officiated by IRB referee Wayne Barnes, and was a massive success, as 1008 people took part in the scrum. Our boys were then given the opportunity to meet Rugby World Cup winners Lawrence Dallaglio and Will Greenwood, as well as Women’s Rugby World Cup winner Maggie Alphonsi.
Congratulations to the four Sixth Form students who took part: Andy Brown, Joe Formby, Colton North and Ossie Whitehead. You can view a video of the attempt below:
