RUBGY legend Rory Underwood went to Soham on Tuesday to celebrate with the Soham under-16s team, who ended their season with a record four-year run of victories.

Underwood came to offer the squad training and performance tips gleaned from his 12-year England career and 14 years spent on the wing for Leicester Tigers.

He still holds the position of top try-scorer for England, 11 years after retiring from the international stage.

Underwood's try-scoring ability drove Will Carling's squad to the 1991 World Cup Final.

He now works as a motivational speaker and performance coach for company UPH.
