In the break between matches why not take advantage of one of these free activities:

Every school attending the Varsity Match 2019 will be given class packs from Whale and Dolphin Conservation and a sample pack can be downloaded here.
Perform a Haka at Twickenham!
With England's response to the All Blacks' Haka in the Rugby World Cup having generated so much media attention we are excited to be running a Haka competition. This will give the opportunity for students to learn about the cultural background and importance of the Maori Haka.
Send in a video of your students (max 20) performing their Haka. Five schools will then be selected to perform their Haka at the Varsity Match at Twickenham between the matches, and one school will be crowned the Varsity Match Haka Champion 2019. Contact email@example.com for more information or click here. Closing date for entries is Saturday 30th November.
Enjoy great music from Alex Dennis and Tom Favell who will be playing in the South Undercroft.
