U14 Rosslyn Park Sevens

The U14 Sevens squad went to the tournament with big aspirations and they delivered.

On day one they took on a school from Belgium leaving them in their wake to get the tournament up and running. They also beat Orleans Park and Shiplake College convincingly to earn the a place in the elimination round against Marlborough College. The boys blew them away in the first half to make day two of the tournament. This saw them go into a group with Tiffin School and Rugby School. A slow start against Tiffin saw the team struggle but two quick tries got the team over the line. Next up was Rugby School for a place in the Quarter final group. The boys came out firing scoring at will and making some big tackles to turn the ball over. Final score 26-5 and place in the quarters. This saw Paul’s take on Ysgol Dyffryn Aman from Wales and Robert Clack School. Again the boys went to another level and blew both teams off the park with excellent defence and accurate attack. The semi finals were next! The King’s School, Macclesfield were the opponents and were never in it. Paul’s came out firing scoring straight from the off and never looked back. The final was against formidable foe, Millfield. The boys had the belief that this was their day, however, it wasn’t to be. At three tries a piece it came down to conversions scored.

A very proud day for the St Pauls rugby club, the boys were superb showing grit, resilience and determination. The future looks bright and we look forward to seeing their progress in the future.
