First XV rugby team through to sixth round of the NatWest Schools Cup
Congratulations to our 1st XV rugby team who are through to the sixth round of the Under 18 NatWest Schools Cup. The team played Oakham School yesterday, storming through to the next round of the competition with a fantastic 34-14 victory.
The match saw strong performances from Bryn Kendrick-Jones and Tom Picton-Turberville, both scoring tries for the team.
This is a fantastic achievement, and we wish the team the best of luck in the next round.
This match was also covered by The Telegraph, where the team drew praise from the Oakham head of rugby – Ian Smith – for being “fantastic in the manner they celebrated their victory”, a sentiment echoed by Perse head of rugby Liam St John who said the boys were a real credit to themselves and the school from start to finfish.
