Harlequins confirm Bermuda trip

Learning from the best: David Strettle, the Saracens wing, gives instruction to CedarBridge Academy students in Prospect during his side's visit to Bermuda last year

Harlequins will travel to Bermuda next month to play against Bermuda Barbarians in the Atlantic Cup.

The English club side replace Saracens who played in the annual Big Game for the past two years.

A series of weeklong events, including school visits and coaching sessions, will lead up to the game at the National Sports Centre on June 6th.

Organisers hope the trip will help them raise money for the Beyond Rugby programme which works with at risk children in partnership with the Family Centre and Bermuda Rugby Football Union.

“As a club Harlequins aspire to challenge and educate young people who have limited access to resources and support in order to improve their health, wellbeing and future life opportunities,” David Ellis, the Harlequins chief executive, said. “We are delighted to be able to support Beyond Rugby Bermuda who are working extremely hard to galvanise community cohesion, engaging people in volunteering, fundraising and development opportunities. As such, we are proud and excited to be involved with Beyond Rugby Bermuda and the Bermuda Rugby Youth programmes. These programmes are very much aligned with our core values.”
