Rugby 7’s Tournament at Windlesham House – February 2017

1st March 2017

Always the biggest tournament of the year for us with 20 top schools competing. At least the weather was better this year and, to be fair, so were our performances. A comfortable win in the first game against Brighton College senior by 5 tries to 1 was the perfect start. Scores from Zac, Luke and inevitably 3 from Dan T. The power of Zac and the sheer pace of Dan were evident from the start. A bit of a slip up in the second match against St Andrews when we simply lacked the necessary physicality losing by 5 tries to 1 in a game that we were capable of winning. The final group match against the Windlesham Wolves was a rather one sided affair and took us through to the main competition to face Windlesham. This put us in the top 8 of those present, somewhere we haven’t been for a number of years.  The quarter final was an immensely physical encounter with some of the best defensive work from both sides that I have seen for a long time. At the end even the referee said it was the best game of rugby 7’s he had ever seen. We lost 4 tries to 2 but the boys can be justly proud of their performance. Well done.

Team: Zac, Dan T, Kieron, Luke, Zevon, Will, Bradley, Nick
