North-East Rugby Side Gateshead RFC Review their tour to the number 1 rugby destination in Europe.
Sky High Sports first started working with this age group from Gateshead RFC in 2017 when the youth rugby team set sail across the North-Sea to the Netherlands.
The ambitious U18 rugby side from South Tyneside were looking to go out on a high with an end of season rugby tour that would be a fitting end of a memorable youth rugby career for their players.
When Gateshead came to us with a brief in the Summer of 2018, our proposed destination was a no-brainer.
Over the last decade, Parma has grown to become the home of our Italian Rugby Tours. The unique sporting, cultural and culinary experiences we can deliver in this great City trumps all other rugby destinations. Parma is, and seemingly always will be, the number 1 rugby destination in Europe.
The team would enjoy an in-depth itinerary with a great balance between on-field and off-field experiences. The team would play tour fixtures against two magnficent hosts clubs, Rugby Parma RFC & Rugby Colorno RFC. The standard of opposition is consistently high and the Terzo Tiempo (third-half hospitality) is always excellent.

"On behalf of the everyone on the tour we would like to pass on our thanks for a great tour.
Everyone is on a real high from touring and they are all talking about how fantastic the whole tour was, both lads and Dads.
The host clubs couldn't have been more hospitable and the matches we played were really competitive.
The first tour that you organised for us was Holland 2017- we all still talk about that tour with very fond memories and I'm sure that the Parma tour will be talked about for years to come.
Once again thanks for a brilliant tour."
