A TAG rugby team could be on their way to play at Twickenham.

The year 5 and 6 team from Uffington Primary School came second in the East Midlands final of the Tag to Twickenham competition earlier this month at the University of Leicester.

They will now go through to represent Lincolnshire in the regional heat in July.

If the team, made up of eight boys and four girls, wins they will go on to play at Twickenham.

PE teacher Louise Swanson said: “The team has won the local schools competition three years running.

“They are all looking forward to the next round and they will have a lot of support from parents.

“If we win the regional heat we will go on to play at Twickenham which would be fantastic.

“If they get through we might see about getting some pupils down there to cheer them on too.”
