Gallery: Bristol Rugby support inaugural British Sports Festival

John Hawkins was part of a Bristol Rugby group invited to Chengdu, China to support the inaugural British Sports Festival in October.

The lock was joined by Bristol Sport Foundation Community Development Manager Tom Monks and  Bristol Ladies’ Robyn Price.

Bristol Rugby welcomed the opportunity to raise the profile of the Touch Rugby tournament hosted by Sichuan Peppers – an event that attracted over five-hundred people.

Hawkins visited a number of schools during the visit, delivering rugby coaching sessions for students and teachers and helping to raise the profile of rugby in Asia ahead of the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Bristol Rugby hope this will be the beginning of a long-term relationship between the club and Sichuan Peppers.
