Big kick-off for Kevin's

St Kevin's secondary school, Neilstown, have started playing rugby for the first time ever.

It was a natural occurrence once a New Zealander was appointed to their teaching staff.

Phil Sommers, who has IRFU coaching badges already, has begun coaching his junior team in preparation of the South Dublin Cup after Christmas.

The school have linked up with Clondalkin Rugby Club and will use the club for home games.
