Glasgow Gaelic School welcome New Zealand 7s

New Zealand 7s were welcomed to Glasgow's sole Gaelic speaking school near Charing Cross today.

The Rugby World Cup 7s world champions and HSBC Sevens World Series leaders were specially invited to the school who have adopted them for this summer's Commowealth Games, to give some tips on a variation of the New Zealander's traditional war dance, The Haka, that they are working on.

The players also answered question about playing in this weekend's Emirates Airline Glasogw 7s at Scotstoun Satdium on Saturday and Sunday (3-4 May), being a sevens professional and played some rugby with the pupils.

Rugby was introduced at the Glasgow Gaelic School just over two year's ago by local development officer, at the time, Tom Davidson.
