ENGLAND rugby stars Paul Sackey and James Haskell are in Great Yarmouth tomorrow (Saturday) for the O2 Scrum on the Beach event.

The free family festival at Marine Parade, from 10.30am to 6.30pm has been bought to town with the support of Broadland-Yarmouth Rugy Club.

Sackey and Haskell will be looking for the teams with the best beach rugby style, on and off the pitch. The eight most stylish teams, judged on style of play, look and attitude, will win the chance to play at a tag tournament at the home of England rugby, Twickenham, in September.

Sackey said: “O2 Scrum on the Beach is a great way to have fun and stay involved with rugby this summer.”
