Rugby rough and tumble

Young rugby players showed off their skills when Linlithgow Rugby Club staged their annual summer fun camp this week.

The week-long event saw around 40 Wee Reds, those still at primary school, learn to play rugby the fun way, despite the showers earlier this week.

Next week, from Monday, a performance camp will be staged for players of secondary school age. This camp is based more on strength and conditioning, focusing on specific positions and sessions on the technical and tactical aspects of the game.

Places are still available for the performance camp, from 9.30am to 3.30pm over five days, costing £100, with family discounts available. Anyone still interested in attending can visit the rugby club’s website at
