This week we visit the Minis, and see what goes on with some of our younger members. Step forward brother and sister Harvey, 10, and Maisie Broyd, 9 (they’re not in the least bit competitive….)

What’s your favourite subject at school?
What do you do on a Sunday afternoon after rugby?

Who is most likely to play rugby for England, Harvey or Maisie?
