Prince Harry Takes His Talents To Twickenham To Gives Some Kiddies Rugby Lessons!

prince harry plays rugby with kids

Who knew the royal family was full of athletes??!

Not to be outdone by his brother, Prince Harry made his way to Twickenham to promote the Rugby Football Union's All Schools programme, which looks to bring rugby to 750 schools as England prepares to host the World Cup in 2015!

The royal rebel is known to dabble in sports from time to time, so he had no problem keeping up with the kiddies as he ran them through drills and showed off some of his own skills!

However, he wasn't alone as England's World Cup winner Jason Robinson was also on hand, and he did NOT go easy on the prince!!

Harry definitely looked winded after his long day on the field as he made his way home drenched in sweat!

But the important thing is that he had some fun! Oh, and he also didn't get hurt! That's pretty important too!

Ch-ch-check out more photos of Harry showing off his rugby skills (below)!

18-Year-Old Rugby Player Dies After Taking Poisonous Diet Pill

teenage rugby player dies after taking toxic diet pills

So sad!

18-year-old rugby player Chris Mapletoft died recently after he took a diet pill that turned out to be poisonous.

The teenager out of Twickenham, London purchased 2,4-dinitrophenol (also known as DNP) online in hopes to shed a few pounds, but the chemical turned out to be too toxic for human consumption. The same chemical is known to be used in pesticides.

Chris's father David Mapletoft was with him when he said he began feeling nauseous and started showing fever-like symptoms. He called an ambulance once Chris began having difficulty breathing, but by the time it arrived he had already died.

David and his wife Lesley Mapletoft had no idea their son was taking the pill, and they are outraged that something so dangerous was so easily available online:

New Zealand Rugby Team Does An Amazing Victory Celebration! Watch HERE!!!

Filed under: ZportzRugbyScary!

These guys sure know how to celebrate a victory!!

The Chiefs recently defended their title as the New Zealand kings of rugby after they defeated the Brumbies in the Super Rugby finals!

But instead of going with the champagne showers we're used to seeing, they decided to celebrate with a little Haka dance!!

For those of you who aren't familiar with it, the Haka is a traditional dance done by the Maori tribes in New Zealand before they went into battle! Rugby teams started to do it before matches to intimidate their opponents, and it quickly became one of the coolest rituals in all of sports!

Don't believe us? Check out the awesomeness for yourself (above)!

There isn't a whole lot we can say about this picture, other than it approaches being perfect in every way!

Seriously, the only way this pic could be any more awesome would be to have Daniel Craig actually dressed as James Bond, in a fly-ass tuxedo and everything! LOLz!

Jamie Roberts happens to be Daniel Craig's favorite rugby player! We haven't actually heard that from Daniel's mouth, but we assume it from the tweet that happened along with the pic from Jamie:

Kate Middleton and Prince William always seem like they're on the move!

Last Saturday the Royal couple was spotted at the Autumn international Rugby Match at the Millennium Stadium in Wales.

The game was between the Welsh Red Dragons and the All Blacks of New Zealand.

Before the game started though, there was a reception for injured former players.

Will and Kate are patrons of the Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust, which supports rugby athletes who were injured while playing for Wales.

They're Royal, gorgeous and charitable too! They're the best couple around!

Way to give back to the community!

Check out some more pics (below) from the event!

Ever heard of Murderball?!

No, it's not some made-up sport from a movie or something.

It's wheelchair rugby and it's one of the most brutal sports out there.

They use their wheelchairs more like
