Phil and Andy spent the evening at the club coaching the Alnwick RFC minis, juniors, girls and colts rugby sections who attended the event.

They also displayed the cup and had photographs taken with the Calcutta Cup. They then spent time with senior club members and players.

Alnwick was the only club the Calcutta Cup stopped off at on its way to Murrayfield, a great honour for the club.
