England and British & Irish Lions coach Steve Borthwick was in Harpenden last week to pass on some of his knowledge to a lucky school.
The former England skipper was at Aldwickbury where he put the senior boys through their paces.
And despite the pouring rain the big second-row forward led an enjoyable session.
A spoeswoman for the school said: “He was able to inspire the boys to do their best and make the most of having such a talented player and coach lead their games session.
“Having dried out we all went inside for a Q&A session where most of the questions seemed based round injuries.”
