LETCHWORTH Veterans helped provide the pre-match entertainment on Saturday.

They played Saracens Brave Herts, the only integrated rugby team in England which allow adults with learning disabilities to play rugby and enjoy the team experience.

Saracens Brave Herts was set up less than a year ago by Simon Lowe and Nick Winwood of Herts County Council's adult care services to provide rugby for those with and without learning difficulties.

Since then their numbers have grown and they have received the backing of sponsors How-Tec and CMG.

They also have use of the same facilities as the Saracens professional team at the University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield.

For further details, call Simon Lowe on 01923 354530 or Nick Winwood on 01920 880904.
