King’s top of the class on the rugby field
THE King’s School has been crowned one of England’s top rugby sevens schools after winning the overall championship at the national Warwick Sevens.
The Macclesfield young men competed in all five age groups from under 12s up to under 16s, against the cream of young English rugby talent including sides from top sports academy Millfield, winning the under-15 event, reaching the final in the under-13 event and winning the Plate at under-14 level
When all the wins, losses and points aggregates were totted up from the five age groups, King’s were named as the top school and will as always will be one of the teams to beat in all the forthcoming prestigious end of season national tournaments.
The under-15 final saw King’s take on a hardworking Wimbledon College team, with flying centre Will Fosbrook darting through the cover at the death to steal the win 26-22.
Throughout the tournament captain Sam Higginson had shone with a display of strength and leadership.
King’s Director of Rugby Guy Mason said: “We have got a lot of very good coaches lower down the school who embed sevens technique into their practice sessions so keeping good depth and minimising contact come as second nature.”
