Sedbergh’s unbeaten streak comes to an end

English powerhouse school Sedbergh’s long standing unbeaten run has finally come to and end. Was it Blackrock? Grey College? Wellington College? No in fact in what must be the biggest upset this century it was in fact Millfield School who were to be the team to end the Cumbrians amazing streak.

Sedberghs last loss came against Kirkham Grammar all the way back in 2016 (15-9), since then it was 41 wins on the trot as well as numerous England schools internationals. Ironically this unbeaten run was started against Millfield.

It is not as if Millfield were having their best year either. The boys from Street in Somerset have thus far had a 13-6 season, not close to what you would expect from such a top level school.

So what was it? Some have reported that Sedbergh were suffering from multiple injuries and while this may be true, perhaps what it does is expose a lack of depth at the school? Whatever the case well done to Millfield for pulling off such an upset.
