Youngsters took part in a fun rugby event on Saturday to mark two years to go until the Rugby World Cup is played on home soil.
The event also saw the unveiling of new rugby goal posts at Welland Park in Harborough and the public launch of Harborough’s bid to host an international side during the 2015 tournament.
Youngsters took part in a kicking competition as well as fun rugby ‘clinics’ on kicking, passing and scrumming - all run by Market Harborough Rugby Football Club.
The Wolrd Cup bid has been jointly submitted by the club with Harborough District Council.
Following a recent assessment visit from the England Rugby 2015 team, those behind the bid say they are hopeful of making it through to the next round.
Leicester City Stadium is one of the venues chosen for the tournament, while the town is just an hour’s train ride from London, where Twickenham, Wembley and the Olympic Stadium are all hosting matches.
Other venues include Villa Park in Birmingham and stadiummk in Milton Keynes.
