At the IME, which is a special day school for children with additional needs run by the French Red Cross, co-captain Jac Morgan Josh Adams, Ryan Elias, Johnny Williams and staff joined different groups of children to participate in a range of activities including passing games, adapted rugby drills and colouring activities inspired by Wales and Rugby World Cup.

Speaking about the visit, hooker Ryan Elias said: “We’ve been to the IME this morning which was a school for children with additional needs. It’s been great. You could see how happy all the kids there were.

“We went outside and we were throwing the ball around, teaching them some skills and kicking the ball about back and forth. Then there was another station with a tackle pad and kids could carry the ball and tackle – they enjoyed that.

“After that there was a colouring station which was quite important with the Welsh flag and the Rugby World Cup logo and things.

On the importance of the squad taking part in visits like this Elias added: “You could see just see how happy the kids were – that’s the main thing. The smiles on their faces, they really enjoyed themselves.

“Also with us being Welsh and being out in here in France it was a chance for us to teach them a little bit about our culture, teach them a few skills.

“They were colouring in the Welsh dragon, they knew what the Welsh flag was then. So yeah it was a great morning.”
