1st XV Meet Rugby Heroes

The St John's 1st XV rugby team rubbed shoulders with rugby stars Martin Johnson and Chris Robshaw on Thursday 25 September as they joined forces in filming an advert for MasterCard to promote the upcoming Rugby World Cup.

Thinking they were off on a team-building exercise in central London, the boys were instead surprised by current England captain Robshaw and former England captain (and British and Irish Lions hero) Johnson, during a trip on the London Eye.

The famous duo, MasterCard Priceless Ambassadors for the 2015 World Cup, chatted to the St John’s boys and offered feedback to the players, having analysed the video of the previous week's match against Seaford College. Both highlighted that passion on the pitch counted for more than technical know-how.

Following an informative and inspiring Q&A session with their heroes, the team was filmed having a kick-around alongside Johnson and Robshaw in London’s Jubilee Park.

Hopefully the St John's boys will have been inspired by this 'Priceless Surprise' from MasterCard, and we look forward to seeing the team put into practice what they have learned from the rugby legends.
