Congratulations go to sixth former Michael Dewar, who has been selected for the Scotland U18 rugby squad for the upcoming international games. Michael had previously represented the Scottish Exiles before being selected to the full squad. Michael is aiming to be in the starting XV on Sunday 8 March when Scotland line up against England and his fellow Abingdon 1st XV team mate, Theo Brophy Clews (England Under 18). This will be the very first time Abingdon School will have two present pupils competing against each other for opposing nations in rugby at schoolboy level. We wish them both every success.
Finally congratulations to fifth years Tom Guthrie and Tom Bishop, who have both been selected to represent the South West Division at Under 16. Their playing programme means that they are now preparing for the international Wellington Festival, played during the Easter break, where they will play Wales, France and Scotland U16s. Good luck to both.
