Two former young Herons meet at Allianz Park

Two former members of our Mini and Youth section recently met at Allianz Park - the home of Saracens.

Harry Gipson of Gloiucester U18 Academy and Luc McNally-Drew of Saracens U18 Academy met when their teams played a fixture at Allianz Park. Harry plays at scrum-half and is currently studying at Hartpury College, whilst  Luc plays fly half.

Here they are in their minis' days -


One of their former youth coaches - Sam Larner - commented on Twitter

"Their continued success is down to exceptional hardwork and game understanding. Incredible talents both of them"

Clips of Harry in action for Gloucester may be seen on this YouTube video
