The ‘little master‘ ran through a series of drills with members of the Caribbean Cup winning side as well as under 19 players at TN Tatem field (on┬áSaturday).

Serevi has been on the island since Wednesday as part of the Serevi Rugby School Programme that was launched just over a year ago.

Bermuda Rugby Football Union chairman, Keith Hodgkins, said the event had been a huge success.

He added: “To have someone like Serevi here is just incredible for the players.

He has been running them through a lot of drills and trying to refine their set of skills.

“He is a hugely positive character and it has proved hugely benficial for our best players to get tips from a guy like him.”

Earlier this week the 44-year-old and his team of players and staff ran a two-day training course for school children from across the island.

More than 50 youngsters from CedarBridge, Warwick Academy, TN Tatem, Delwood, Somersfield and other schools took part in the event…

The Serevi Rugby School will conduct another training session with the national team … at TN Tatem School.

They will then leave the island at the beginning of next week bound for Vancouver in Canada to run another rugby programme for youngsters.

Serevi added: “We have been really pleased with the response the programme has got across the US and now in Bermuda

Rugby gave me so much as a player I wanted to give something back and help other children get involved in this great game.”
