Kids can master the arts at Leicester Tigers
Former Leicester Tigers flanker Craig Newby will host a 'breakdown and contact skills master-class' when he returns to Welford Road in May.
The former All Black made 84 appearances for the club until he was forced to retire from the game at the start of the season with a knee injury.
He has since become head coach at Cambridge RUFC, and has just returned from Malaysia after being part of a Tigers coaching team that held a first-ever Rugby Camp in Asia at the Royal Selangor Club in Kuala Lumpur.
The breakdown and contact skills master-class is one of a series of specialist Tigers coaching days to be held this summer.

Newby was a master at the arts of close contact during his time at the club, and he will lead the day-long session on Wednesday, May 29.
On Tuesday, May 28, Tigers will host a 'unit skills special' at Welford Road, which will have a set-piece focus for the forwards and will concentrate on the principles of attack for the backs.
There will be a kicking master-class at Welford Road on Thursday, May 30. It will cover all forms of the art, from place-kicking to kicking out of hand, from the grubber-kick to drop-kicks.
The master-classes are for players in the under-11 to under-16 age groups, and are an excellent opportunity to learn and develop position-specific skills.
Players attending a master-class will receive a free junior ticket to an allocated first-team game at Welford Road next season, as well as lunch on the day, a Rugby Camp T-shirt, a water bottle, a rugby ball and free membership to the Junior Tigers Club.
