A cracking day of rugby across the Club. Some exciting performances, some excellent results as well as some frustrating and close losses. However, overall a great day of rugby. Our 1st XV came so close, dominating territory for large periods but just could not get over the white wash. The 2nd XV performed superbly again and just could not hold on against a large Radley pack. The 16 As continued their fantastic unbeaten season. Our 15 As got back to winning ways with a good result where they dominated possession showing their improvement in handling this year. Our 15 C and D teams again performed so well impressing with convincing wins. The 14 A lost a very tight game and showed just how far they have come in such a short space of time.

This weekend we turn to RGS Guildford. Our Lower School also has a trip to Twickenham to watch England v Samoa. Please check your email and look out in weekly mailing for all the information on the end of season rugby award for Seniors, Middle and Lower School.
