Eastbourne College this week hosted the Papua New Guinea Rugby Sevens Squad during the team’s preparations for the forthcoming Commonwealth Games. The players arrived at the College on Sunday and trained all week. They were due to leave today (Friday).

During their stay they undertook training sessions and completed final fitness checks before travelling to Glasgow to compete in the XX Commonwealth Games at the end of July.

The visit has been arranged by Russell Earnshaw, an Eastbourne College teacher and former England Rugby Sevens coach.
