23 Sep Arise EMEA Makes Debut on BT Sport!
British & Irish Lions legends Lawrence Dallaglio and Shaun Edwards provide plenty of pointers in a great afternoon with BT Sport!
A hardy cross club group of Arise sponsored London Cornish RFC players were provided with a great afternoon at the studios of BT Sport in Stratford, East London yesterday. With Lions legends Lawrence Dallaglio and Shaun Edwards providing plenty of technical input before, during and after the Aviva Prem match between Saracens and Bath, all of the players took plenty from the experience, and the Arise logo gained prominence in a number of the drills (see photos). Perhaps the star of the show however, was presenter Craig Doyle, who playfully grabbed a ball and attacked first Dallaglio and then the LCRFC defence during rehearsals, and then dropped goals from all angles as soon as the show was over. A big thanks to all at BT Sport, who made us feel really welcome and gave of their time freely post match, demonstrated by the group photo taken at the end. This is the first time Arise has managed to gain national television coverage for its homeworking model, but hopefully not the last!
