Northumbria was officially designated as a host training venue for the Tongan team after rigorous inspections and discussions with RWC2015 staff and visiting team management over the past two years. The Tongans will use the University’s outdoor grass pitches at Bullocksteads and the indoor training hall, fitness facilities and swimming pool at Sport Central.

Northumbria has a rich history of involvement in the sport from alumni Martin Corry, Scott Hastings and many more going on to play at a professional level to, more recently, student Roy Webber being selected to represent England at this year’s Rugby World Cup.
