Our U16 XV remained unbeaten when they completed their season on Saturday with a final win against St Aloysius College. They won all 18 matches, including their success in the Scottish Cup. Congratulations to all the players for a fantastic effort.
The U16 7s team continued a successful weekend for rugby winning the Merchiston Sevens yesterday. After winning their pool matches and beating Fettes in the semi final they went on to beat Stewart’s Melville 29–5 in the final. This followed on from their success at the Edinburgh Academy Sevens Competition last week, where our U13 boys also lifted their age group’s cup.
Meanwhile Neil Irvine-Hess (S5) was voted ‘man-of-the-match’ for his lineout performance in Scotland’s U18 12–19 defeat against Wales. Illness prevented Ramsay Young (S6) from taking his place on the subs bench. Matt Poole (S5) has been selected for the Scotland U17 Training Squad.
