Pupils at a March primary school were taught everything they need to know about rugby by the Northampton Saints Rugby Club.
Year 4 children at Burrowmoor Primary School on Burrowmoor Road, March, have been involved in the training programme spearheaded by the Northampton-based club.
A spokesman said: “The course links mathematics to sport, and has consisted of five weeks of one hour in class looking at applied Maths, scoring, league tables, counting passes in a game etc.
“That was then followed by an hour of Tag-Rugby taught by a professional coach.
The Northampton Saints are a professional rugby union club from Northampton and were formed in 1880.
