THREE Worcester Warriors stars gave a ladies rugby team a big surprise when they turned up for a training session.

Scrum-half Francois Hougaard, Leicester Tigers-bound back rower David Denton and departing fly-half Tom Heathcote visited Five Ways Old Edwardians where they coached players and met with children and their parents.

The Birmingham club were one of 12 winners across the UK of Aviva’s Grassroots Giveaway competition, which saw them win £2,000 worth of Gilbert kit and equipment.

It was all part of Aviva’s campaign to celebrate the inclusive and diverse nature of the sport from the amateur level to the elite.
