TWO international rugby stars coached drills at a college in Woodley last week.

Saracens players Billy Vunipola, who also plays for the England national side, and Sione Vailanu, who plays for the Tonga side, visited Waingels College with a number of academy squad players to share their skills and expertise with GCSE PE pupils, before signing autographs and posing for pictures with other students and members of staff.

Blindside flanker Vunipola said: "It's really great to be able to come out and meet the students today, when we have down time we are usually just training or keeping our fitness up, so it's nice to be able to do something different.

"England is very much a football-focused country, so it is great to be able to promote rugby in this way. The students certainly have the talent for the game, so it is up to them to develop their skills and see where it takes them."

Headteacher Tom Bartlett said: "It's a huge honour to have the players visit us today, and we are grateful for players of such calibre to find the time to share their expertise with our students."

Head of PE, Reahgan Quartermaine said: "It's a great privilege to have the players here and for the students to meet them in person. Saracens are doing really well in the Premiership, so it is really inspiring for the boys and girls to see where rugby can lead them."
