    An item about a young woman who teaches rugby to boys.

  • Description

    Leeds, Yorkshire.

    21 year old teacher, Adriel Collinson teaches rugby to the boys at Hunslett Carr Junior School.

    Various shots of schoolboys playing rugby on a muddy field. M/S of Miss Collinson blowing her whistle. The boys and Miss C. are seen in a scrum. Miss C. plays various catching games with the boys. Miss. C. demonstrates tackling on one of the boys and in turn is tackled herself.

    Hunslett Carr Junior School is proud of its rugby record - over 100 old boys went on to play for famous clubs.

    Good story about women with unusual jobs (for the era!).
