School Rugby

London Irish play host to Schoolboy clash

As we have often said on this site before, schoolboy rugby is a hotbed of rugby talent. The skills on show in top class school games are really of the highest standard and many of the players will go on to be top level professionals. If ever there were a place to see the stars of tomorrow it is on the school playing fields of today.

Tonight though offers the chance to see schoolboy rugby on the platform that it deserves as London Irish RFC host Wellington College v Bryanston. Even better, the game is at the amateur ground in Sunbury rather than the football stadium in Reading.

It promises to be an excellent game with both sides looking incredibly strong so far this season.  Wellington have been beaten just once in their six games so far, a defeat to early season pacesetters Marlborough, who are also one of only two teams to beat Bryanston this season.

With both sides in excellent form, and coming off the back of good wins against Eton and Blundell’s, we can expect a game of high skill and passion. Both possess several youth internationals with Rory Jennings and Max Clark of Bryanston likely to star, while Wellington number 8 Buchan Richardson will be flying the flag for Scotland.

Wellington’s other big star, their England age group international and captain, Simon Sexton is out until the New Year unfortunately, with a knee injury that has been causing problems all season.

All in all it is a huge game for both sides, with the winner gaining some serious bragging rights over the coming weeks.
