THE Henley College rugby team celebrated victory at the Windsor School Sevens plate competition on Sunday.

Some of the best school rugby sides in the country are invited to the annual tournament, which began in 1949, including Rugby School, Wellington College, Stowe School, Eton College and Hampton School. The competition is regarded as one of the premier schools tournaments.

Henley were drawn against Wellington College, St Benedict’s School, Berkhamsted School, the Royal Grammar School and Bedford School in pool A.

After an early loss against Wellington (21-19), Henley went on to beat all of the other teams in the group to progress to the semi-final of the plate competition, and Bedford, who Henley defeated, went on to the final of the cup by way of points difference.

After overcoming Stowe at the semi-final stage, Henley met Bryanston School in the final where individual tries from Will Morrison, Colin Kerins, Cam Crawford and Oskar Douglas helped them secure a 27-5 victory.

Henley College’s head of rugby, Martin Unsworth, was delighted with the performance. He said: “It was a credit to all the players that they were able to generate such enthusiasm after playing six games in very cold conditions to win the match. A great result.”
