Rugby players joined young people with learning difficulties for a training session.

Four Saracens players, Brad Barritt, Will Fraser, Neil de Kock and Schalk Brits joined young people with autism at their first pre-season training session.

The players led the children in a cross bar challenge and tackling bags at Allianz Park, Hendon, and gave out awards to the young people, between 12-20, after the session in the club lounge.

The sessions, organised by Tomas Gamage of the Saracens Sport Foundation programme, has expanded for a few months and there are 20 students who take part regularly.
