Gold And Silver For Princethorpe’s Rugby Teams

09 Nov

Congratulations to the U14 and U16 Rugby Sevens teams who took Gold and Silver respectively in the ISA Regional Tournament. A fantastic result for the boys. 

The ISA U14 and U16 Regional Rugby Sevens took place on Wednesday 8 November at Market Bosworth RFC.

Princethorpe’s U14 boys powered through their games with convincing wins against: Twycross House 28-14, Stafford Grammar 56–0, Lichfield 42-7, Derby Grammar 38-0, LGS Stoneygate 64–0 and Pitsford 28–0. The team’s discipline and power in defence blending well with skill and intelligence in attack ensured they finished top of table claiming a well-deserved Gold medal. 

Six teams took part in the U16 competition, Princethorpe was slow to start and went down 21-0 to Twycross House in their opening game. That was a wakeup call for the boys and from then on, they were firing on all cylinders, winning their next four matches against: Bowbrook House 26-7, Derby Grammar 21-7, LGS Stoneygate 19-7 and Tettenhall College 33–0. They finished second overall to take the Silver medal.

Foundation Director of Sport, Lee Cassell, commented, “It was a great day of Rugby that gave the boys the opportunity of playing a different format of the game. Both teams worked hard and enjoyed the day despite the weather. The tournament was good preparation for further Rugby Sevens competitions later in the year.”
