Schools Rugby Weekend Roundup: Saturday 15th December

The final handful of school games for 2018 took place this weekend, with most schools on holiday and many players participating in the U18 Academy League.


The action began on a cold Friday night with the annual Colfe’s v Bradford Grammar School game at Blackheath RFC. A brilliant game unfolded, nip and tuck all the way, with Bradford Grammar the side to end the year on a winning note, 19-17.


Meanwhile in Birmingham KES Five Ways ended 2018 in celebratory style with a superb 22-12 victory over KES Birmingham.


Moving to Saturday a number of games fell foul of the weather as cancellations began to sweep around over Saturday morning. Nevertheless a handful of fixtures did go ahead, notably Bishop Vesey’s v Solihull, with the quietly impressive Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School coming out as the 24-7 victors.


Hymers College ended an impressive 2018 with a 68-7 victory at Hull Collegiate, while Princethorpe College collected a 32-10 victory at Lawrence Sheriff.


Meanwhile King Henry VIII Coventry secured a 26-8 victory over Abraham Darby to breeze in to 2019 and the 7s season full of confidence.
