Last week RaboDirect PRO12 Masterclass winners Matthew, Hayden and Jack brought four friends each on a tour of the Sportsground with RaboDirect PRO12 Ambassador Brett Wilkinson.

The group of 15 were treated to a full tour of the changing rooms, the custom built gym, the team room and media facilities.

A meet-and-greet with the full senior squad who had just completed training on the main pitch kicked off the day and there were lots of photos and autographs.

Connacht players Craig Clarke, Sean Henry, Tiernan O’Halloran and Craig Ronaldson were on hand to take the group through the Masterclass where they practiced their throwing, passing and kicking.

A mock press conference completed the day and Brett took all the tough questions thrown his way.

A big thank you to all the children, parents, players and representatives from Celtic Rugby for contributing to a great day at the Sportsground.
