A RUGBY-MAD youngster won the chance to spend a day with England and Leicester Tigers’ fly half Toby Flood.

Ten-year-old Bradley Symmonds from Harrogate won a competition with Disney’s XD Aim High Initiative.

Bradley spent the day with Flood, learning some specific rugby techniques suited to his own game.

Specifically, Bradley found that he had a tendency to kick left, and Toby helped him correct this.

They also did some passing drills and learned how to take a hit, although not from Toby!

Bradley also got an all access tour around the Leicester Tigers stadium

To win the competition, Bradley had to answer a qualifying question first and pass an interview.

Disney XD launched the Aim High initiative last year to help inspire a generation of kids to get the most out of life, try new things and learn from some of the UK’s most talented and dedicated professionals.
