Rugby at the North Pole

Some men want to help a charity. The men are rugby players. They want to raise 300,000 pounds. They want to give the money to the charity.

The players travel to the North Pole. They must walk 161 kilometres. When they get to the North Pole, they play rugby.

They are the first men to do this. They set a new record.

Difficult words: charity (an organisation which helps people), rugby (a type of sport), raise (make and give away for a good thing).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
