Sibford 7s Rugby Tournament

Our u12 (Year 7) rugby sevens team competed at the Sibford School 7’s tournament on 11th March.

This was the first time in several years that we have taken part in this competition and we returned by finishing 2nd overall out of 20 teams in total.

Schools from all around Oxfordshire and Warwickshire entered the tournament and we had some noteable victories including beating Cheltenham Boys College by two tries to one in the Semi final.  It is worth mentioning that the other schools we finished above were Warwick School, King Edward School, Beachborough School and Royal Latin School, all exceptional rugby-playing schools!

Unfortunately we were not able to beat Magdalen College School (another independent school) in the final, but what was frustrating was that we beat them in the group stages.  Possibly tiredness got the better of our boys when we faced them again in the final.

For such a small school with limited facilities compared to others, we certainly pack a punch and compete with the best.

Congratulations to all the team:  Joseph Fairbairn, Morton Bell, Jacob Gainsley, Harry Smith, Josh Windebank (player of the tournament), Ed Kerby, Sam Caldicott, Elliott Lockwood and Tyler Moodley
