U13 Rugby v Shrewsbury House School
Sportsmanship, school values, camaraderie, skill and agility were all on display in the U13 Rugby fixtures v Shrewsbury House School on Monday. With internal and external exams, illness and senior school visits, we were down to bare bones for numbers in teams. Everybody willing and available got on the bus and the outcome was outstanding. Our 3rd XIII (mostly 4th XIII players) battled hard and never gave up against a stronger Shrewsbury House School team. Our 2nd XIII (a mix of 2nd and 3rd XIII) were glorious in defeat, losing by a single try, 7-8, with end to end rugby and arguably one of the best team performances of the year. Finally, our wonderful 1st XIII, played a remarkable game and won 9-3. Mr Adkins called it the ‘best performance of the year’ from the team, who were physical, skilful, hardworking and humble – great ambassadors for Dulwich Prep London. Well done boys!
U9 Rugby – Shrewsbury House School Festival
A beautiful wintry afternoon welcomed the U9 rugby players to Shrewsbury House on Friday. The only thing that was perhaps more stunning was the quality of rugby played by the boys in their debut for Dulwich Prep. The first two games in particular were very impressive, with the boys scoring 6 tries and conceding only 2. There was a small dip after the lunch break but the boys should be very proud of the way that they played and also how they conducted themselves throughout the day.
