The U-15s squad at the Eakring Road club will be attempting to cycle all 2,277 miles in just 24 hours next month.

It is to raise funds for younger players to watch games during the 2015 Rugby World Cup, as well as to pay for a trip to Twickenham to watch the Rugby 7’s tournament.

Fundraiser Claire Wright told Chad: “They will be representing Mansfield by playing some games against one or two of the local teams in the area when they are on tour.”

The 30 teenagers will attempt the 24-hour challenge from midday on Friday 25th July.
