Saints Rugby – Press Conference


GETTING the chance to get up close and personal with some of the world’s leading rugby players is on offer to students at the University of Northampton, who are able to attend the weekly ‘pressers’ at Northampton Rugby Union Club, known as the Saints.
With several international players in their squad, the students line-up alongside professional reporters at the press conferences, allowing them to get experience of real reporting and interviewing.
Club spokesman Chris Wearmouth added that it also allowed the club to give media training to their younger academy players, many of whom are a similar age to the students, and who need training in front of the cameras as much as the students do asking the questions.
