While the Champions Trophy and Schools Cup may have dominated the week’s schoolboy rugby chatter, there has been plenty of other exciting schools rugby this week.
There is more to come on Friday evening and over the weekend too, and you can see our preview of that here:
Wednesday saw some fantastic rugby, not least a brilliant game in Somerset as Millfield beat Llandovery College 19-7 to keep their unbeaten season going. It was a tough game, lit up particularly by one stunning solo first half try from Millfield outside half Will Joseph. The St Joseph’s Festival finalists have a quick turnaround now though, they face Blundell’s on Saturday.
Denstone College were in superb form once again on Wednesday afternoon with a stunning 46-7 victory over Ellesmere College, they are looking very strong this year. Meanwhile in the South East KCS Wimbledon picked up an important win over Emanuel, 11-3, while Brentwood were 27-5 winners over Saffron Walden and Simon Langton won 17-12 at Cranbook.
Magdalen College’s fine season continued with another strong win on Wednesday, this time beating Watford Grammar 42-10 away from home, while Grey Court were 29-24 winners over Isleworth and Syon.
Meanwhile in the Scottish Schools Cup Dollar Academy progressed to the next round with another excellent victory, beating Marr College 37-17.
There are still a few late results to come in from Thursday, but it was a good day for King’s Rochester, they were 22-8 winners at Bethany. Clayesmore enjoyed themselves too, beating Warminster 38-12.
