After a long journey down to Bryanston the competition started with a hard fought win over Downside School with a last minute, length of the field try from Sam Maggs proving to be the difference and giving Christ College a 12-10 victory.
The boys really upped their game for the next opponents, Wellington School, and put in a good team performance winning 42-5. The whole squad played some lovely Sevens, with James Newey scoring a hatrick.
The good form continued into the next match and a superb defensive display laid the foundations for a 33-0 victory over Queen’s Taunton. The last match in the pool stages was a winner-takes-all affair, with both Christ College and Portsmouth Grammar School unbeaten to this point. Portsmouth started the better and held a 12-7 half time lead. The second half saw Christ College put in a huge defensive display which enabled them to capitalise on their possession, scoring two unanswered tries and running out 19-12 winners. Alex Bush played a captain’s role in this match with a huge performance in defence and attack.
As group winners Christ College went into the Cup semi- final against a very strong Kingswood side who had already won the West of England 7s the week before. Good early pressure and use of possession by Kingswood led to two early scores but Christ College fought back and after a fantastic solo run and score from Alex Bush the half time score was 12-7 to Kingswood.
The second half went much the same as the first with Kingswood using their possession well and scoring early tries. Christ College never gave up and had the final word with a very well worked team try finished by Osian Morgan. The final score was Kingswood 29 Christ College 12. The whole squad performed excellently throughout and showed great improvements in each tournament. Preparation has already begun this week for Rosslyn Park.
