Denstone oust Sedbergh to make Rosslyn Park statement

Denstone College won their own Denstone College yesterday, setting them up nicely for the HSBC Rosslyn Park National School 7s.

Four sides competed in what was a small but keenly contested 7s competition, with Denstone, Sedbergh, Stowe, and St Joseph’s College making up a very high class field.

The day started off with a group stage, which Denstone topped after starting the day with a 14-7 win over Stowe before backing that up with a superb 19-14 victory over the much fancied Sedbergh, before rounding things off with a 36-10 victory over St Joseph’s College.

Sedbergh’s loss meant that they finished second with victories over Stowe, 28-10, and St Joseph’s College, 28-19. Meanwhile Stowe won the battle to avoid bottom spot, beating St Joseph’s College 15-14.

That put Denstone College and Sedbergh into the final, where Denstone once again showed their ability, beating Sedbergh for a second time, this time with a 17-10 scoreline.

It was a huge day then for Denstone who will be bubbling with confidence ahead of Rosslyn Park, while Sedbergh will be hoping to recapture their trophy winning form of a few weeks ago.
