SPORTY students at Sidbury Primary School got a tag-rugby master-class from Exeter Chiefs star Tony Walker last week.

Professional Tony returned to the school to run coaching sessions with children in years five and six, and his guidance got the seal of approval from the youngsters.

"I really enjoy doing tag rugby with Tony", said ten-year old Eddie Bolton. "It's great working with a professional rugby player."

PE co-ordinator Amy Frost said: "I'm delighted that the Chiefs value the importance of working with youngsters, allocating time and money to support our young achievers."

Sidbury kids will soon have the chance to put their newly-developed skills into practice, competing in an inter-school tournament.
