Schools Rugby Weekend Roundup – St Paul’s dominate Oldest Four

St Paul’s won the third edition of the Oldest Four tournament, held this year at Cheltenham College.


The famous South West London school put themselves in a commanding position ahead of today’s final games with victories over Sherborne and hosts Cheltenham College yesterday.


They rounded that off by beating Durham 22-5 in the final game today, before being handed the AJ Dingle Cup by Gloucester and England star, Jonny May.


St Paul’s conceded just three tries all weekend, with a 23-5 win over Cheltenham and a 15-5 win over Sherborne preceding that 22-5 victory today against Durham.


Durham also beat Cheltenham College by a handy 29-7 scoreline, but found life tough against Sherborne, drawing 10-10 with the Champions Trophy quarter finalists.


Cheltenham College meanwhile could not quite make full use of their home advantage, falling to their third defeat in their three games first thing this morning with a 17-5 loss to Sherborne.


Durham’s superior points difference meant that they finished second, above Sherborne in third, with Cheltenham College in fourth, and St Paul’s, of course, on top claiming the AJ Dingle Cup.


In the other game this weekend Teddies Oxford got off to the perfect start to this half of term, beating the Oratory away, 12-8.
