German Students keen on Rugby League
A group of German Engineering Students at Glyndwr University have taken up Rugby League as their sport of choice. Glyndwr University’s Community Rugby League Coach, Allen Jones explains more. “We have a group of 9 German Students at the University who are mad keen on playing Rugby League. We have been running coaching sessions for just over a month now and they hardly miss a session. As they are all brand new to the game and we have started with Touch Rugby League and they love I, they are quick to pick up the basic Rugby League skills required to play Touch, which is a very fast and skilful game and requires a high degree of fitness, skill and decision making. The group has recently been joined by three female students recently so we are beginning to grow our small squad, which is just what we wanted”
