Rugby: U18 and U16 sides find out fate as Rosslyn Park 7s draw made

Senior rugby sevens squad members at Rydal Penrhos will once again test their skills at a prestigious national competition.

The school’s U18 and U16 sides will once again test their skills against some of the best talent in the country at the Rosslyn Park Sevens, which is one of the most prestigious competitions in the UK.

The U18 squad have been drawn in Group O alongside Royal Grammar School, Newcastle, King Edward’s Whitley, Canford School and Gravesend Grammar School for Boys as they attempt to reach the knockout stages of the competition.

All ties are scheduled to take place on Tuesday, March 26 in what is expected to be a hotly contested race to the elimination stages.

Since its inception in 1939, the Rosslyn Park National Schools Sevens has evolved into the world's largest school rugby tournament with around 7,000 boys and girls aged 13-18 competing annually.

The draw for the U16 Colts tournament has also been made, with Rydal Penrhos set to square off against Wellington College, Sutton Valence School, Mount St Mary’s College and John Fisher School in Group P on Wednesday, March 27.

Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “The Rosslyn Park 7s competition has proved to be an invaluable experience for our more senior rugby players, who all get a tremendous amount out of being part of such a big occasion.

“We have managed to achieve some impressive results in recent years, and each member of our U18 and U16 squads have been working incredibly hard under the expert support of our coaching staff here at Rydal Penrhos.”
