Bromsgrove School’s U18 Rugby 7s side have been crowned winners of the Rosslyn Park HSBC National School 7s Vase after two exciting days of rugby.
The Bromsgrove side played fantastic rugby throughout the tournament. In their group games, all matches were won (0-22 against Pocklington, 43-0 against King's School, Bruton, 26-10 vs Wisbech and 36-17 vs Worksop).
Bromsgrove then went through to the group winners play-off against Ysgol y Preseli, which they also won 38-5. This meant that the team were through to the second day and the quarter-final pools. They faced Cathedral School, Llandaff and won by a considerable margin - 82-0. They then played Norwich School and won 41-7.
The semi-final saw Bromsgrove pitted against USP Seevic College which they won 32-12 and Oakham, who some had pipped as favourites. The strong Bromsgrove side, which had won the Solihull 7s earlier in the season, toughed it out for a 26-21 victory.
With just a few hours in between, the boys were into the Vase Final against another Midlands side, Rugby School. There was an astonishing amount of energy from the Bromsgrove boys, always pushing ahead whether in defence or attack. After some stunning tries, the final ended 26-5 in Bromsgrove's favour and the team were crowned 2019 Rosslyn Park Sevens U18 Vase winners, a fantastic achievement for the boys and their coaches.
Tony Windo, Director of Rugby said “Winning the Rosslyn Park Vase final is an amazing achievement and something the boys should be immensely proud of. I know Mr Mullan, Deputy Head (Co-curricular), the School and I are very proud of them. Throughout the term the boys have conducted themselves and trained exceptionally well and they now have a tangible reward for all of their hard work.“
