GWC progress to U18 Schools' Cup Final

GWC progress to U18 Schools' Cup Final

Published on 25 November 2019

George Watson’s College have progressed to the final of the U18 Schools’ Cup after an astounding win over Edinburgh Academy.

With the final score sitting at 44-8, Watson’s will now prepare to play Stewart’s Melville College at BT Murrayfield in December. 

Ally Donaldson, Watson’s rugby coach, said: “Up until the last quarter of the game it was very tight. The final scoreline perhaps flattered us, but it’s great to be in a final at Murrayfield again. This is a brilliant group of boys. That was a solid performance tonight and we’ll look forward to Murrayfield.”

Our team no doubt benefitted from the large scale show of support by pupils, parents and the wider Watson’s community at Myreside. Our school wishes to thank everyone for their support and congratulate Edinburgh Academy on a brilliant match.
