One lucky youngster attending the Holt RFC Kingswood Festival will this week win his or her chance to play rugby at Twickenham in June, training with rugby legend Lawrence Dallaglio.

Festivals are taking place all over the country and Holt RFC hosted one last weekend and another is to follow on Sunday.

It's all thanks to SACLA' , the famous Italian pesto pioneers who have announced a ground-breaking partnership with the Rugby Football Union in which they will sponsor all the grassroot rugby festivals across England and Scotland this year involving over 40,000 youngsters.

Holt RFC Mini's Chairman, Ben Jones, declared it was a wonderful opportunity for all the players.

And mums will get four great recipe cards using a variety of Sacla' pasta sauces - perfect recipes for all the family to share and enjoy.

There will be lots of prizes on offer, and one child from each festival in Eastern Counties will win the chance to join Dallaglio at the Sacla' National Training Day on Saturday June 5 at Twickenham.

Each child will be chosen based on his or her sportsmanship, discipline, teamwork, respect and enjoyment in line with the RFU's own core values.

Dallaglio said: 'Together we will be supporting rugby festivals for children aged between 10 and 16 years all over the country, which will reach their exciting climax with a special and unique training session with me and over 100 youngsters at the world-famous Twickenham Stadium, the home of England rugby, this summer.

'These Sacla' Rugby Festivals are a fantastic day out for the whole family and will also be a great way to encourage families to share more time together - whether that's playing sport or enjoying, healthy family meals around the table'.
