Schools Rugby Results Roundup – Sensational weekend of rugby

In our preview we said that this weekend’s school rugby fixtures had the potential to make this weekend the best of the term to date, and it would appear as though we were right.

 

Right across the country there were some stunning looking fixtures, and they reached expectations with some outstanding results coming through.

 

5 Key Fixtures

 

Our five ‘key fixtures’ certainly lived up to the billing, perhaps none more so than Millfield v Bromsgrove. The Champions Trophy champions against the NatWest Cup champions. The billing suggested it should have been a close contest but it turned out to be far from that as Bromsgrove posted one of the results of the season as they dismantled Millfield 42-7, on Millfield’s patch. A result that has confirmed what we already know, that Bromsgrove are a top side, and that will have left Millfield nervous of Sedbergh’s visit on Wednesday.

 

Sedbergh will have no such worries as they went back to the top of the Daily Mail Trophy table after they beat the side who had replaced them there last week, Durham, by a commanding 38-14 scoreline.

 

Sticking to the northern circuit, Stonhyhurst certainly showed their quality as they beat the very much in form RGS Lancaster 17-7. They are a side to keep an eye on for the remainder of the term.

 

Our other two key fixtures were local derbies, usually close-fought dogfights, both turned out to be strong wins. In the Croydon derby Whitgift upset the home fans as they won by a supreme 32-0 scoreline over John Fisher, while in Abingdon the home side beat local rivals Radley College 22-3.

 

Five Previews

 

Our other five previewed games were no less exciting and in some cases surprising too, all adding to a sensational day of rugby.

 

One of the results of the day was Stowe’s 35-11 victory over Epsom College, who are one of the very best sides in the country in many observers eyes. Stowe must surely begin to fit into that bracket too.

 

Most sensational of all though was Tonbridge’s 15-10 victory over Cranleigh. Tonbridge are a good side but Cranleigh have been looking like they might fit into that handful of sides right at the very top of the game, for Tonbridge to get the win therefore deserves great credit.

 

As do Brighton College, who put in a sensational performance to beat Trinity 43-13, as too did Clifton College, who beat Marlborough College 35-7.

 

RGS Newcastle were also in fine form as they beat an Ampleforth College side that have been playing some top quality rugby by a 29-5 scoreline.

 

Around the country

 

Arguably the most sensational result of the weekend though was Sherborne’s outstanding 34-29 victory over Wellington College – a result that will see Director’s of Rugby across the country take note, and will see Sherborne head into this week’s Champions Trophy quarter final full of confidence.

 

Bedford were also highly impressive as they beat Dulwich College 29-3, as were Blundell’s, who beat Bryanston 23-8.

 

Hampton’s 20-9 win over St Benedict’s caught the eye, as did St Paul’s, who beat one of the real pace-setters this year, Harrow, 23-20.

 

Barnard Castle were once again in stunning form, they beat Hymers College by an outstanding 80-3. RGS High Wycombe were in impressive in their 22-12 win over Warwick, while Stamford also warrant a mention after their 35-0 over Uppingham keeps that incredible unbeaten home run, stretching to November 2010, rolling.

 

Another of the sensational results this weekend was Framlingham College’s stunning comeback against The Leys. From 29-0 down, Framlingham bounced back with thirty-six unanswered points to win 36-29, a comeback that the school is rightly immensely proud of.
