1st XV success against U18 Daily Mail Cup Runners Up
The Ist XV put the disappointment of their narrow defeat in the Daily Mail Cup away at RGS High Wycombe behind them with an outstanding performance against Old Swinford Hospital away in the Black Country. With a number of regular players missing, including England U17 Squad member, Sam Underhill, the Ists combined impressive defence with some excellent attacking rugby to beat a powerful Old Swinford XV 49 – 19!
Back row forwards Callum Wyman, who’s had another impressive season and Harry Johnson nullified a number of Swinford attacks and turned over a lot of ball, and Ross Preedy had a fine all round game at fly-half scoring 24 points in the process. With just one game remaining against Cardiff school, Glantaff, the 1sts have a very impressive record, having won 17, drawn 1 and lost 1 of their 19 matches and scoring 619 points and conceding just 200 in the process.
