Solihull School

World Cup Legend Gives Rugby Masterclass.


England’s legendary World Cup-winning rugby captain Martin Johnson received a hero’s welcome when he called into Solihull School to help with coaching duties.

Senior squad players at the independent school for boys and girls enjoyed a master class with the captain who lifted the World Cup in 2003 and then became team manager until he retired in 2011.  

The Solihull-born 84-capped England player, who also toured three times with the British and Irish Lions, passed on plenty of rugby advice and tips during the hour and a half training session.

Martin, who led his club Leicester Tigers to back-to-back Heineken Cup victories and won the league six times, also found time to answer questions from the youngsters.
