Premiership rugby star passes on tips to next generation of talent at Seevic College
Monday, 11 March 2013
An Aviva Premiership rugby player recently visited Seevic College to deliver an inspiring coaching session to our Rugby Academy.
Alex Brown, a prop for Exeter Chiefs - who currently lie in eighth position in English rugby’s top professional competition – visited the Benfleet Campus on Friday 8 March.
Twenty-three-year-old Alex, who was born in Rochford and played for England at under-16 and under-18 level, passed on his top level experience to the College’s players despite torrential rain on the day.
Seevic College’s rugby team compete in local and elite national competitions against some of the best College teams in the country.
The team trains five times a week, consisting of three rugby sessions and two gym sessions, and plays fixtures on Wednesdays.
Players on the team are viewed as student athletes, and in addition to having a high commitment towards rugby must also display the same level of commitment towards their studies.
In the recent years the College has produced a number of outstanding rugby players who have gone on to play rugby at a high level while also achieving strong qualifications.
