Northampton High School hosts New Zealand International Rugby team

We were overjoyed to welcome the Black Ferns to school as they continued to prepare for their clash against England

On Tuesday 2 November, we were delighted to welcome the New Zealand Rugby Union Ladies’ team to Northampton High School, as they continue to prepare ahead of this Sunday’s clash against England.

We were overjoyed to host the five-time world champion Black Ferns, who took part in a training session on our state-of-the-art astro turf, with their sights firmly set on victory ahead of the weekend’s highly anticipated clash. It was also a marvellous opportunity for some of our students to witness elite-level athletes perform up close and in person, with our Year 10 students having the privilege of watching the closing drills of the intricate session. Despite a taxing work out, the squad was more than happy to oblige in a socially-distanced photo with our students, and even gifted the school with a squad signed ball as a memento of their visit.

With their training nearly complete, attention for the Black Ferns is now solely on this weekend’s clash with England on Sunday 7 November, taking place at Northampton Saints’ Franklin’s Gardens. For tickets and more information, please visit:
