A PUPIL from a Portsmouth school will be singing the national anthem on the pitch at Twickenham.

Adam Taylor, 13, from St Edmund’s Catholic School, will join soprano Laura Wright on the turf before the Six Nations match against Wales on Sunday.

Adam got the opportunity through a scheme organised by England Rugby called All Sports, which aims to take rugby to 400 state secondary schools by 2015.

As part of it, 100 schools in the UK designed their own rugby shirts with the help of sponsors Canterbury.

The designs were turned into a rugby shirt that a chosen pupil will wear on the Twickenham pitch. Adam was chosen to represent his school due to his dedication to rugby.

The youngsters will sing the national anthem before heading off to their seats to watch the match.
