The Wellington School U16s Sevens tournament included teams from Taunton, King’s Worcester, Bryanston, Blundell’s, Bristol Grammar School and the hosts, Wellington School.
With two defeats in the first three matches the young Christ College team beat Bryanston 31-5 in the semi-final of the Plate competition with tries from Brayshaw, Knight, Bell, Humphreys and Shrestha.
The final saw them pitted against a strong Taunton side but tries from Humphreys and Shrestha and a try and four conversions from Brayshaw ensured a 28-12 win which ensured they brought home the Plate.
Dogged determination, skill and flair saw them beat some much larger opponents and much praise was forthcoming from Director of Rugby at Christ College, Jonathon Goodridge. He said, “I am delighted with the performances the boys have put in, they’re a relatively inexperienced team who have worked so hard for each other and the team today. I’m thrilled they’ve come away from this tournament with some silverware and a great experience of rugby sevens under their belts.”
