England Rugby wants more kids playing

England thumped Italy 47-17 at Twickenham during their Six Nations match on Saturday, which featured nine tries.

The day was also a special one for 100 kids who invited to the game for two exciting match-day moments.

The students formed a guard of honour to welcome the England Team on arrival and later stood around the pitch waving large St George's flags as the teams ran out and sung the anthems.

Each of the kids were wearing a colourful rugby shirt, which students had designed at a workshop.

They're all from schools that have only just started to play rugby and didn't have a team kit until now.

It's all part of England Rugby's All Schools programme to get more school children playing rugby.

We spoke to Mark Saltmarsh from England Rugby about it at Twickenham Stadium.
