City pupils to try their best.
Pupils from All Saints' College, in West Denton, Newcastle, will take on teams from Liverpool, Barrow, Manchester, Nottingham, Bristol and East London in the Royal and Sun Alliance Under 15s Rugby Festival.
The 10-a-side competition is at Rugby School, where the sport was invented, over the Bank Holiday Weekend.
Tom McLaren, rugby development officer at the Rugby Football Union, has been coaching All Saints' players.
As part of a Royal and Sun Alliance funded project, Mr McLaren has worked with many youngsters in Newcastle's West End as part of the city's Education Achievement Zone.
All Saints' principal, James Colquhoun, said: "The young men in this event have been very committed to their training and are looking forward to competing in this event."
