Rugby Sevens Season Kicks Off

Posted: 1st March 2016

Last Saturday 12 of the UK’s rugby playing schools descended upon our immaculate fields at Gallery Road to play in our Sevens Tournament.  The players were in two groups of six teams, with each team playing five matches before the group winners were decided.

Some superb sevens rugby talent was on display, giving rise to a comment by one of our independent referees, ‘The quality of rugby played here today is better than what you would expect from U13 rugby players.’ A huge accolade indeed to all the players on the day.

The two top teams went through to the Cup semi-finals and the third and fourth placed teams in each groups contended the semi-finals of the Plate section. The cup semi-finals were Dulwich Prep London A v St Olaves from York and Moulsford v Caldicott, while the plate semi-final matches were Bedford Prep v Colet Court and Aldro v Danes Hill.

The Plate final was contested between Aldro and Bedford Prep with Bedford coming out very worthy winners. The Cup final was a replay of last year’s National Schools Final with Dulwich Prep London playing Caldicott. It was a very close and fierce encounter that could have gone either way. Caldicott ended up, however, defending their title by winning 14-19. A great tournament played in a great spirit. A (almost) perfect way to start our sevens season.
