POTENTIAL rugby stars of the future from Woodbury Primary School have been receiving tuition from staff at Exeter Chiefs.

Tony Walker, a member of the club's community programme, has been visiting the school to provide children with tag rugby coaching.

Mark Dinan, a class five teacher, said: "The children have loved it. They are about to do their fourth session with Tony.

"He has been very encouraging with the support and advice he's offered including those who are not natural rugby players. He is a very good ambassador for the sport."
