The ever popular Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup returns for its ninth season, with aspiring young rugby players across the country getting the chance to play a series of matches against other teams from their local area.
The Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup is a nationwide series for under-11 and under 12 teams.
The long running grassroots rugby programme, supported by Land Rover, since its inception, was the first of its kind to be officiated by Premiership Rugby and is run in conjunction with all 12 Premiership Rugby clubs.
The Exeter Chiefs Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup took place on October 2 at Exeter Saracens RFC where youngsters attending the grassroots festival also had the chance to meet some Chiefs’ stars.
The Exeter Chiefs players offered advice for aspiring young rugby players, met the clubs and families who make these festivals so special and watched the next generation of talent in their matches.
The Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup has seen nearly 68,000 children take part to date, from all over the country, providing opportunities for U11 and U12 players to play, develop and excel in the game.
All teams attending each Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup will have the opportunity to be selected to visit Twickenham for the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final on 27 May 2017.
