Students and Staff were delighted to discover the Cell C Sharks rugby team from South Africa, chose CCB's Fox's Fields for their training ground ahead of the match against Ulster at Kingspan stadium. Emotions were conflicted - how fantastic to have the team play at Fox's Field and witness them playing right here. However, the team was training for the game tonight at Kingspan Stadium and our loyalites are with Ulster!

The boys were honored (and a little star struck) to meet the players, four of whom are members of the Springbok squad - our South African students and Gap Year Assistants were over the moon! The Sharks players were so kind with their time, patiently posing for photos and selfies with the pupils and even giving away some of their kit.

We have provided a selection of photographs for you to enjoy in the media gallery (you must be logged in to see them). It was truly an exciting few days to see these skillful players on Fox's Field.
