Kearney targetting a world cup place

March 11th, 2011 | Blog, Business, Features, Lifestyle, Pick n'mix, Sport | 0 Comments

Now that he’s been signed up to play his rugby in Ireland for the next two years, Leinster’s Rob Kearney is targetting a spot in Declan Kidney’s Rugby World Cup squad as he continues his rehabilitation from the injury that ruled him out of this year’s Six Nations Championship.

The Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain Ambassador has been sharing the secrets of the skills that prompted the IRFU to ensure they hold onto his services for another two seasons, holding a special rugby training session with a delighted Gorey RFC.

The Wexford rugby club won a competition run by Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain to experience their very own training session with the Leinster and Ireland fullback and professional trainers.

The rugby clinc took place in Old Belvedere RFC, Dublin and experienced rugby trainers Girvan Dempsey (Elite Player Development with Leinster Rugby, 82 caps for Ireland), Richie Murphy (Leinster Skills and Kicking Coach) and Collie McEntee (Head of Leinster Rugby Academy) were also on hand to give the team an experience they will never forget.

Speaking at the session, Rob Kearney said: ‘This is a really great prize for Gorey Rugby Club and I’m delighted to be involved with Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain on giving them such an opportunity. They have had the chance to train with professional rugby coaches today, which is obviously very exciting. The session also gave them insight into what a typical training session is like when you train with a professional rugby team.”
