Scotland v England - Two Abingdon School Boys in opposing National Teams
7th April 2015

Abingdon School sixth former Michael Dewar may have won this match against his Abingdon teammate Theo Brophy Clews but it wasn’t to be when his national side Scotland played England in the U18 rugby international on Sunday 8 March.  Theo captained the English team and led them to a 39-27 victory.  Theo also scored and was awarded Man of the Match.

Theo is the first ever Abingdon School boy to captain England against Scotland at U18.  He said,  “It is a unique feeling to play for England and it was a privilege to captain the side as I was amongst a number of people who could have done it.”

Michael, who was making his international debut, starting at openside for Scotland, commented, “There is a friendly rivalry between us but on the day there was definitely a serious edge.”
