WRU coaching staff meet children from the Prince's Trust at the Millennium Stadium
The WRU rewarded children who have taken part in coaching and leadership sessions with the Prince's Trust by taking them to watch Wales train ahead of their clash with England last week.
There are five schools here today but more than 50 across Wales who have taken part
A group of students from schools across south Wales went to Cardiff on Friday to watch Wales' captain's run at the Millennium Stadium.
The group of youngsters are all part of The Prince's Trust clubs at their respective schools which provide personal development for students.
The initiative, funded by Balfour Beatty, in partnership with the WRU, uses rugby to improve self-esteem, confidence and communication skills.
"The children take part in the six to eight week sessions which are delivered by the WRU's coach development officers," said Dan Owens, WRU officer for the Ospreys region.
"They learn and develop leadership skills, take part in competitions and learn team work skills.
"There are five schools here today but more than 50 across Wales who have taken part."
Cyfartha High and Pen Y Dre High in Merthyr, Mountain Ash Comprehensive, Coleg Sir Gar and the Include project in Ystrad Mynach and Caerphilly took part in the scheme which also includes tag rugby sessions delivered by WRU coaches.
Yvonne Davies, programme executive for the Prince's Trust added: "The children haven't stopped smiling since being involved, the project seems to get better each year."
Mountain Ash Comprehensive student Sarah Williams, 15, from Aberaman, said: "The Prince's Trust has given me the opportunity to try new things. I am the only girl in my club and it's been great to get involved in the rugby initiative. I feel much more confident."
