Millfield looking to defend Sedbergh 10s title


There is little time to recover from the excitement of the HSBC Rosslyn Park National School 7s, with the traditional end of season Sedbergh 10s taking place tomorrow.

Millfield last year completed their perfect shortened format of the game season by heading straight from a victorious Rosslyn Park campaign to go and dominate the Sedbergh 10s a Worcester Warriors’ Sixways Stadium.

This year they therefore arrive as defending champions, and despite not winning at Rosslyn Park this year, they will arrive full of confidence. They reached the semi finals, only losing to the brilliant eventual winners Wellington College 31-29 in what was the game of the week, and arguably the game of the 7s season.

They are placed in Group C at the Sedbergh 10s, alongside Barnard Castle, RGS Lancaster, and RGS High Wycombe.

The tournament is split into three groups of four, with the top two teams going into Monday’s Trophy Group stage, with third and fourth going into the Plate.

The top two teams from those groups will compete in the Trophy semi finals, while the two third placed sides will play a 5th/6th place play off in both the trophy and the Plate.

Hosts Sedbergh are in Group A alongside Brighton College, Malvern College, and QEGS Wakefield, while their second ten are in Group B, with Bristol Grammar School, the impressive Kirkham Grammar School, and Irish legends Blackrock College.

As ever it ought to be a brilliant two days of rugby to round off the season.
