Pick of the pride: Learning the Haka

As part of his Journey with the British and Irish Lions Rugby team, Jounalism student and vice president of RGU SPORT Gavin Rittoo will document his experience for us on the RGU Student Blog. Gavin is joined with seven other ambassadors from Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales. Together they will visit New Zealand Rugby headquarters, visit local rugby clubs, and attend two Lions matches including the Maori All Blacks match and the first Test against New Zealand. Once home they hope to spread the benefits of rugby to schools and sport clubs. Gavin has also attended 3 lions matches and is also participating in fan engagement evenings (which involve lions fans, NZ fans , club members, ambassadors all talking about how to improve the game)

Check out Gavin learning the Haka in his latest video!
