We take a look at the Sunderland RFC U18s tour to Venice. A final hoorah for this junior rugby side.
Off the back of a magnificent tour to the Netherlands in 2018, Sunderland RFC Colts got in contact to begin the preparations for their final ever youth rugby tour.
With junior rugby drawing to a close for this tight group of players it would be hugely important for Sky High Sports to ensure that the local side would go out with a bang!
After much deliberation the team from the North-East voted on Italy as their end of season rugby tour destination, with the rugby-mad region of Veneto being the preferred tour base. Sky High Sports planning and logistics expertise coupled with excellent flight options to Venice Treviso from Edinburgh airport would help make this all possible.
The tour package would see Sunderland RFC play tour fixtures at Campo Rugby Checco Camposampiero ASD and Grifoni Rugby Oderzo. Teams with an excellent reputation for their playing ability and post-match hospitality.
Please read on to see the Venice rugby tour feedback from Tour leader, Debra Edmundson.
"The Sunderland Colts U18s Tour to Venice 2019 with Sky High Sports at the helm will certainly go down as the best tour we have had in the many many years of touring independently and with Sky High!
From start to finish Jamie our tour manager was on hand to organise and co-ordinate – leaving nothing to chance. We had an amazing time over 4 days in a top hotel with fantastic facilities. Completely blown away by the host clubs hospitality and some great games of competitive rugby.
It was a fitting end to Junior Rugby for the Sunderland Colts team, the end of an era, and suitably splendid finale of a tour. We had a blast, and having Jamie on tour with us was the icing on the cake!
Thank you so much."
