King’s power to sevens title in style
THE King’s rugby first team have lifted the county sevens title with a powerful display against the cream of the Wheatsheaf sides at St Ambrose College.
King’s won in impressive fashion beating King William’s, Lymm HS, Calday and then Bishop Heber School 35-5 in a what turned into a rout.
King’s scored 142 points and conceded only five all day and were by far and away the best team on display.
Fluid centre Cameron Redpath, rapier scrum half Will Hodgson and high velocity winger Kieran McKeever all excelled.
“As always in sevens it was a squad performance,” said King’s director of rugby Guy Mason.
“You are only ever as strong as your weakest link and we had strength in depth.
“We have a talented group of young rugby players with the full set of running and handling skills needed to shine at sevens who have been moulded by our own sevens tactician, ex-Macclesfield first team stalwart Paul Bartle.”
