Super 7s Series heads to Durham this Sunday


Durham host the next leg of the HMC Northern Schools Super 7s Series this Sunday as they welcome 20 top northern schools to their playing fields.

Sedbergh will be the big favourites having already claimed the first title of the series, however they are drawn in a very tricky looking Group 2 alongside RGS Newcastle, King’s Macclesfield, Yarm, and Ashville. RGS are technically the reigning champions after their 26-19 final win over Durham in 2013 as the 2014 edition had to be called off due to the weather.

One of Sedbergh’s big rivals for Northern, and indeed National, 7s supremacy over the last couple of years has been Woodhouse Grove. They are drawn in Group 4, where Scottish side Merchiston Castle could prove a real handful, while Ampleforth, Birkdale, and King’s Priory Tynemouth will also fancy a challenge.

Kirkham Grammar School will hope to have a major bearing on the outcome too. They are drawn in Group 3, which pits them against tough opposition in the form of Hymers College, QEGS Wakefield, St Peter’s York, and Newcastle School for Boys.

Hosts Durham, meanwhile, are drawn in Group 1, where they must get past an impressive Bradford Grammar School side as well as Mount St Mary’s, Pocklington, and RGS Lancaster.
