CHRIST COLLEGE BRECON TRIUMPHED OVER FIVE RIVAL TEAMS, TO BECOME PLATE FINALISTS; WHILST MILLFIELD SCHOOL TRIUMPHED AS THE EVENTUAL CUP WINNERS. THE SPECTATORS WERE ENTERTAINED BY SOME SUPERB RUGBY AND MANY OF THE PLAYERS HAVE ALREADY GAINED INTERNATIONAL AND REGIONAL RECOGNITION.
All eight-cup quarter final sides displayed excellent rugby and these are sides that tend to progress to the National Finals at Rosslyn Park in South West London in March.A spectacular day of Rugby Sevens at the NFU Mutual tournament at Christ College, witnessed the very best in schoolboy rugby from leading schools across Wales and England.
Royal Welsh Band and Drum Corps provided the soundtrack to the day which the players and large crowd thoroughly enjoyed. The Brecon VII were led by captain Will Bush and were victorious over Ellesmere College, Wellington School, Shrewsbury School, Cathedral School Llandaff and a missed out by one point over Campion School after a hugely competitive game.
The boys played a very strong and able King’s Worcester VII, who just had a little more, in a very competitive Plate Final. Local talent Huw Thomas, Tom Richards and Henry Morgan Gervis featured strongly in the Christ College squad.
James Reynolds, Director of Rugby and Head of Boys’ Games at Christ College, commented: We are very proud of our boys, who played their hearts out. Tom showed how much talent he has with several well taken tries at important times through the competition but reaching the Plate Final was definitely a squad effort. It was a breath-taking tournament, the result of hard work and commitment, and hopefully the beginning of a promising season.”
Eventual winners Millfield had to work hard through every stage to win the competition and in the quarter finals had to see off last year’s cup finalists Whitchurch High School and former National Finalists Clifton College in the semi-final.
The sevens specialists, with a superb understanding of how and when to move the ball confidently into the space, beat the competitive Monmouth School in the Cup Final. In the Bowl Final Ysgol Bro Dinefwr dug in deep to hold off Hereford Cathedral School.
Many thanks to the Friends of Christ College for their support providing bacon rolls and tea and coffee throughout the day.
