A group of young orphans from Lesotho recently visited the UK courtesy of the excellent charity Touraid which Rhino have supported for some time. Hosted by Braintree rugby club their visit included a day of coaching at Saracens new home, Allianz Park and a trip into London to visit 10 Downing Street and the sights of Buckingham Palace and Big Ben. On the penultimate day of the tour, the club hosted the ' Lesotho Cup' a mini tournament with junior players from Braintree RFC and TY Academy. There were some great young players from for all the teams. However one player that stood out was Eric the tour captain from TY Academy. Well done Eric and one day we all hope we will see you playing international rugby for Lesotho!
