THE Henley College AASE side progressed to the RFU AASE League top four playoffs following an impressive 10-32 victory over SGS Filton on Wednesday of last week.
The bonus point win secured Henley a second place finish in the RFU AASE League South and progression to the top four playoffs.
This is the college’s highest league finish since 2011 when they reached the AASE finals at Twickenham and their manager Jack Wiggins is hoping that they can get there again.
Wiggins said: “The boys performed well on Wednesday and outplayed a strong SGS Filton team that are always tough to beat at home.
“The goal was to finish in the top four and progress to the playoff stages; having now done that the focus turns to November 2 when we get another crack at seven-times champions Hartpury College.
“We got close last time but close is not good enough for this group of players; we take every game as it comes but the objective is simple, stay together, keep improving and the results will come.”
Henley College now play Hartpury (Gloucester), Beechen Cliff (Bath) and Exeter (Chiefs) to decide their final ranking. They then play the same ranked team in the north on finals day.
