Sudbury Under-12s coach Stephanie Prior wants her starlets to make the most of their Twickenham rugby 
experience next weekend.

As Saracens and Northampton Saints do battle in the Aviva Premiership grand final next Saturday, the Twickenham turf will be graced by Sudbury’s young guns at half-time in a parade of champions.

It came as a result of winning the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup, hosted by Saracens in October.

Prior said: “They are looking forward to it so much and I think we have about 50 people coming on a bus for it.

“Everyone has been counting down the days to this and I think some of the players didn’t believe it.

“I think it’s something that they will remember forever and it is really good for a club like ours which is small.”

Launched in the 2008/09 season, the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup is the first national grassroots tournament officiated by Premiership Rugby and run in conjunction with all 12 clubs.

World Cup winner Lewis Moody said: “The teams taking part in the parade of champions worked hard to win their respective cup competitions and they deserve this reward.”
