Children and young people aged 8-18 who are dreaming of becoming the next Rob Andrew get a chance to meet international players and receive top class coaching at day camps, weekends or five-day holidays in centres all over the country. The Scott Hastings masterclass, for example, taking place at Fettes College, Edinburgh, August 5-9, Pounds 189 (or Pounds 69 as a day camp), is led by former international Andrew Ker, with Hastings taking one session. The holidays have already produced one international star in the England scrum-half, Kyran Bracken. Details: 01625 618700.
