Rugby at the North Pole - level 2
A group of rugby players hopes to raise 300,000 pounds for a children’s charity, so they travelled to the North Pole.
They walked across 161 kilometres of sea ice to set an unusual world record. They played the first ever rugby sevens match at the North Pole.
Difficult words: raise (to make and to give away for a good cause), sevens (seven-a-side; each team has seven players).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
