On Saturday 21st February, two Christ College Upper Sixth Pupils – Alex Bush and Iain Mitchell – played against the English Public Schools ‘Lambs XV’ as part of the Welsh Crawshays’ Youth Team.
The fixture was played at Maidenhead RFC with the two Christ College boys being part of the team who beat the Lambs 22-17. The fixture was unfortunately ended with twelve minutes still on the clock due to a serious injury to one of the Lambs’ players.

Both boys had an exhausting end to their half term with Alex playing in all of the school’s sevens games until they were knocked out in the quarter finals.
