Touch being showcased at Twickenham this weekend
Some of England’s top Touch players will get the chance to showcase the sport at the home of the national rugby union team this weekend.
As well as a demonstration game during the half-time break of England’s Autumn International against Japan there will be interviews on the big screen, England Touch graphics and an article in the match programme.
This demonstration will also highlight the partnership between England Touch and the Rugby Football Union to give O2 Touch Centres and their players a pathway to national club competitions, as well as representative and international selection.
All of the players who will be strutting their stuff on the hallowed turf are members of the England High Performance Training Squad which is currently preparing for the 2019 World Cup in Malaysia.
The partnership also extends to development of referees and coaches within O2 Touch Centres, improving the platform for this rapidly-growing grassroots sport to expand even further.
