    It is good that they are showing an interest in what you are doing. Let them come so they can see what you are up to.

    You wont look a plum at all, I prefer talking to applicants that have there parents with them when recruiting. Gives your parents a chance to see what is going on so they understand what you are going through, and they can see that you arent being had over by the staff too.
    If they are supporting you then make the most of it! I went to the recruiting office with my dad when I applied at 16, so you wont be the first and certainly not the last.

    ok cheers lofty ill take em along.
    ah i dont think i can scrape through another year of school to wait for intake, think the only reason im still there is because of the rugby team.
    good luck corbuk but seems like it takes ages to get in. Are you still at school? wish i werent so i could just train the whole time if it takes as long you say.

    If anything going in with your parents will show that they support you with your choice and that you're serious.
