Top 5 School Teams of the Weekend

Saturday saw the last full school fixture list of the season, making this our final Top 5 School Teams of the Weekend of the season.

There were plenty of teams to choose from, with a few huge scorelines this weekend. Oddly though, none of those high scoring teams make our Top 5 this week.

Top School Teams of the Weekend

Bedford

It has been an up and down year for Bedford, but it has never been in any doubt that they are a fantastic school team who play a superb brand of rugby. The trouble they faced this week was a side who play an equally good brand of rugby and have lost just three times all season, confirming them as one of the best around, Stowe.

Bedford were unabashed though and pulled of a superb 18-11 away victory to end their season, and many of their schools rugby careers, on a real high.

Canford

Canford had not beaten schoolboy heavyweights Bryanston for sixteen years, and while Bryanston have not had their best season this year, that is still a formidable obstacle to overcome.

Canford overcame it though, winning a tight and tense game 10-9 to break that sixteen year streak and finish the year in brilliant fashion, which was made even better yesterday as Joe Holland was named in the ISRFC Lambs South West XV.

Hampton

Hampton have been on a sensational run since half term, losing just once and even that was to Wellington College, who sealed the Daily Mail Trophy title this weekend. Even so, an away trip to Brighton College is a tough challenge for any side so that recent run was under serious threat. As it turned out though, Hampton were more than up for the challenge, securing a 20-13 victory that gives them a brilliant seven win for eight games since the half term break. With NatWest Cup games to come, this run could propel Hampton to a great run once again in that competition.

Pate’s Grammar School

Our weekend prediction have been a little tough on Pate’s of late, but this weekend we backed them against an excellent Bristol Grammar School outfit.

It was just as well really, the Cheltenham side have not lost since September and had been in great form, they continued that with a superb 27-5 victory over Bristol Grammar School, earning a deserved spot in this week’s top 5.

Wellington College

A 22-18 away victory over Tonbridge might well have been enough to get Wellington into this week’s Top 5 anyway, but their fate was absolutely sealed by what this victory meant, it sealed the 2014 Daily Mail Trophy title for Wellington College.

The competition still has a few fixtures left to run but having secured twelve wins, one draw, and just a single defeat, Wellington College have wrapped it up already, following on from the 2013 champions, Woodhouse Grove.
