KING’S Ely Senior won the Cambridgeshire Sevens Rugby tournament at the end of Lent term.
Up against some of the best rugby schools in the county, the King’s Ely team won
four and lost one, enjoying big wins against Comberton Village College (43-7), Long Road Sixth Form College (28-10), The Perse School (17-14, thanks to a last minute try) and the best-known rugby school in the area – The Leys School (17-12).
The squad also won one of their games at the Rosslyn Park National Sevens, which is the biggest tournament in the world and many schools have national club academy players.
Head of Rugby, Steve Johnson, said: “Sevens is an extreme version of rugby and, together with the normal skills and physicality, demands stamina of the highest quality.
“The squad trained throughout the Lent term in the cold, snow and rain to prepare for their tournaments. They put in a fantastic effort and are all delighted to have won the countywide competition.”
