Northampton Saints tournament finals await Perse rugby team
1 Mar 2019
The Perse U13 rugby sevens team will be battling it out in the finals of the prestigious Redrow Homes Northampton Saints Sevens Tournament following victory in the regional round.
Hosted at The Perse’s Abington Fields site, the regional competition was played in a round-robin format featuring six teams, with the home team emerging triumphant by winning all of their matches. They also picked up a bonus point from every game by scoring at least three tries in each one.
The team set their stall out with a 35-0 success against Abbey College and followed it up by beating Bourne Grammar School 30-10, Wisbech Grammar School 30-15 and North Cambridge Academy 25-5 before completing their campaign with a 20-5 win over Felsted.
The boys’ reward is the chance to play at Franklin’s Gardens, the home of Gallagher Premiership side Northampton, in the tournament finals after Easter. In the meantime, they will be looking for more success at the Berkhamsted Sevens on 10 March.
