SGS Filton retain Sedbergh Tens title

After the excitement, cold and jubilation of the Rosslyn Park Sevens and The Daily Mail RBS Finals Day, the annual Sedbergh Tens took over on Sunday and Monday, Filton College’s Will Carpenter reports:

“SGS Filton College bounced back from a disappointing first round exit at the Rosslyn Park Sevens to retain their Sedbergh Tens title in style.

Led by Captain, Monty Reed and Player of the Tournament, Nick Carpenter, the Bristol-based College ran riot, scoring 241 points in just six games of 12 minutes per-half.

In the group stage, SGS Filton recorded wins over Lancaster (58-0), Kirkham Grammar (57-7), Barnard Castle (29-5) and Blackrock School (29-10), before beating Brighton College 29-10 in the semi-final.

In the final, Rosslyn Park champions and host school Sedbergh were no match for a rampant Filton who ran out 39-0 winners to retain their crown, with Carpenter scoring a hat-trick.

Head Coach George Tavner was delighted with his team’s performance, he said:

“We had a bit of a setback last week at Rosslyn Park so for the players to bounce back and play like this shows everything about the character that exists within this group of players. What they achieved this weekend was a bit special and the manner in which they played made me very proud.”

Filton embark on their annual Easter tour this week as they visit South Africa. For updates on the tour please follow @filtonrugby. “

All in all then a satisfactory couple of days work for Filton after they were knocked out of the Open competition at Rosslyn Park at the group stages, albeit on points difference, to eventual finalist Woodhouse Grove.
