The rugby community came together over the week end for a world record attempt with a difference as Long Eaton RFC hosted the world's largest rugby training session.
Based in Derbyshire, players, friends, family and rugby stars joined the attempt at their West Park ground - with England head coach Eddie Jones also joining.
Leicester Tigers community team were there in full force, celebrating the event and getting stuck into the session. Check out a video of the day below.
The event aimed to help raise money for a clubhouse extension at the facility, which since 2012 has grown from 22 players and one coach to three men’s teams, occasional Vets, a ladies’ team and girls’ teams at U13, U15 and U18 and thriving Colts, youth and minis.
Emma Taylor, rugby development officer at Leicester Tigers, said: "It was great to be invited along and to get involved with such a ground-breaking feat, It's just brilliant to see a community come together through rugby and build on the foundations for generations to come.
"We were giving away prizes, tickets and hosting a number of games for participants to get involved with. We can't wait to welcome back our friends for the Tigers versus Saracens game later this month."
We are overwhelmed by the support received today; far exceeding our expectations with the number of participants.— Long Eaton RFC (@LongEatonRugby) September 19, 2021
