Prince Harry worked up a sweat on Tuesday playing rugby with some young athletes during a mini-tournament at Greater Manchester’s Eccles RFC.

Prince Harry Plays Rugby

Harry, 30, jogged around the rugby pitch in a white polo shirt, black jogging pants and cleats. The young royal was captured throwing and catching the ball, as well as trying to catch up to young players while playing defense in the flag-rugby games. He was also spotted joining a scrum with some of the adults at the event.

"We are all looking forward to him coming, but it’s all very busy here, getting everything ready and secure,” Eccles RFC spokesperson told Mancunian Matters prior to the event. "We're all really excited and I bet the kids might be able to teach him a thing or two."

As the patron of England Rugby’s All Schools Program, developed by England Rugby, Harry makes an effort to encourage more youth players to join the local clubs, as well as to promote more ruby teams at secondary schools. Harry is also the honorary president of the organizing committee for the upcoming Rugby World Cup, England Rugby 2015, and is the vice patron of the Rugby Football Union.

By the time the 2019 World Cup comes around, which will be played in Japan, England hopes to have 750 more self-sufficient rugby-playing schools, according to the Daily Mail.
