Princethorpe's Super Six Impress At County Level
Six Princethorpe boys have earned representative honours playing for the Warwickshire Under 16s rugby squad this season. Pictured proudly in their County strip are Year 11s (left to right) Callum Cooke, Harry Smith, Tom Parker, James Crabtree, Sam McCosker-New and Jack Hewitt at their match against their North Midlands counterparts at Leamington RFC on Sunday 4 February 2018.
The Princethorpe boys have been helping to make Warwickshire a side to contend with for several years now – some first made the County squad two years ago as Under 14s. They have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunities their County selection and training has provided. This formidable combination of wing, second row, prop, hooker, scrum half and centre had a tough match at Leamington but proved that Warwickshire was definitely a side to be reckoned with taking the win with help from tries from Harry, Jack, James and Sam.
The boys are due to take on the East Midlands next although the game has had to be rescheduled because of the recent snow.
Head of Rugby at Princethorpe College, Pete Bucknall commented, “The boys’ County selection is fully justified, reflecting the hard work they put in on the training field and the competition pitch.”
