College recruiting players for rugby team

THE Henley College is recruiting under-18s to join its rugby team in September.

It follows trials that were held last month at Dry Leas — the home of the Henley Hawks — in partnership with Henley Rugby Club.

These were taken by the college’s assistant coach, Max McMinn, alongside the club’s director of rugby, Nigel Dudding. Eamonn Egan, the college’s vice-principal and Sandra Wickens, its curriculum leader, also attended, and a good standard of rugby was played.

College players will turn out in the Association of College’s League and will have the opportunity to take part in trials for the Ealing Trailfinders under-18s academy.

Timetables for A-levels and vocational diplomas at the college are worked around students’ sports choices.

The college and Henley Rugby Club has a long-standing partnership, which has been recently renewed.

Last year, the college’s partnership with Premiership side Wasps was axed after seven years with its advanced academic and sporting excellence training scheme formally coming to an end this year.
