The U12A rugby squad travelled to Twickenham last Friday, to take on a hotbed of rugby schools in the Orleans Park Rugby Sevens Tournament.

On a day where the weather was more akin to the winter months, the boys still managed to play with an element of skill and panache, which showed the progress they have made in their first season of Wilson's Rugby.

The group stage saw us pitted against Hampton Boys and Isleworth and Syon School. Despite a strong start, Hampton were always a bit too strong and we could not compete with their speed, knowledge and understanding of how to play the shortened format of the game. With matches only six minutes each half, any mistake was capitalised on and lapses in concentration usually led to conceding tries. The second game in the group was a much closer affair. With the scores tied at two tries each, the last play of the match saw Vincent Y finish a slick move that ran the length of the pitch to score the winner!

Finishing second in the group meant we went through to the Plate competition, playing the runners-up from the other three groups. This saw us matched against the hosts (Orleans Park), Richmond Upon Thames School and Kew House. Some tenacious tackling from Ryan and the all-firing Philip contributed to another win, loss and a draw, meaning we finished as runners up in the Plate Competition. A really excellent effort from all those involved. This bodes very well for next season.
