Perse student captains U18 Northampton Saints academy team
It has been a busy weekend for one of our Lower Sixth rugby players.
Outside of school, Jasper Dix was selected for and has been playing for the Northampton Saints U18 Academy side. This is impressive in itself, as he is a year young, being an U17 player. Last weekend, he took on the challenge of captaining the side as it faced the Gloucester U18s. Unfortunately, the Saints side lost the match 28-34, despite having led 14-0 earlier in the game. Jasper has also played in the Saints’ wins against Yorkshire Carnegie (39-7) and Saracens (19-5) earlier in the season.
Well done to Jasper and good luck to him in all of his future fixtures for the Northampton Saints.
