CHESTER RFC took part in a very special ‘Land Rover Parade of Champions’ at the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final on Saturday in front of a sell-out Twickenham crowd.
Proud sponsor Land Rover gave this unique opportunity to the youngsters after they won the Sale Sharks Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup.
The young rugby enthusiasts got to watch the exciting battle where Harlequins were crowned Aviva Premiership Rugby Champions. Not only did they get to see their heroes play at the home of England rugby but they got to parade around the pitch at half time to celebrate their Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup win.
The team’s excitement on the day was clear and youngster Sam Nieto said: “I can’t believe I went to Twickenham Stadium and got to go on the pitch at half time of the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final. It was really exciting to walk out there in front of so many people, it was an amazing atmosphere and I now really want to play there when I’m older. I’m so pleased we won the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup.”
Commenting on the support of the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup, Laura Schwab, Marketing Director of Land Rover UK, said: “Today is a very special day for everyone at Land Rover. It gives us great delight that through the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup these young, aspiring rugby players are able to fulfil a dream and come to Twickenham. The tournament is a significant initiative of which we are very proud, and which provides a unique opportunity for young players to channel their enthusiasm for the sport and to play in a national tournament. Land Rover is committed to supporting the development of the young players of the future.”
