One of England's Rugby World Cup winning heroes wished a Yate sports club all the best in their season.

Whilst attending an event at Yate Outdoor Sports Complex, Mr Vickery stopped to share a message with those involved at Yate Rugby Football Club.

In the video message he said: "To everyone at Yate Rugby Club, good luck for the upcoming season.

"I have already heard about how hard you are working and it is fantastic to see Grassroots rugby thriving."

Yate RFC have a number of teams, with a 1ST men's team, a junior side and also a 'Yaks' veteran team that works to raise money for charities whenever they play.

Take a look at the video above.
