    Rugby - Leicester Grammar V King's

    Four teams made the journey to Leicester Grammar on Saturday morning, with almost 80 boys taking up the opportunity to represent their school at rugby. The U-12 A team continued their fine start to the season by winning 40-0. The team, led by captain Elliott Paley, put on a clinical display built on excellent defence and superb support play. Man of the match was Seth Roberts who scored 4 well worked tries. The U-12 B team demonstrated the strength and depth of rugby talent in this year group by winning 75-10. There were a number of excellent individual performances on the day so a joint man of the match was awarded to Mitchell Cowley and Leonard Arlando. Both players worked tirelessly for the team in defence and also made some very good carries. Not to be out done, the U-13 and U-14 teams also ran out convincing winners. The U-13’s won 55-0 to remain undefeated this season. Man of the match was Finn Mulholland who’s excellent reading of the game meant he was always in the right place at the right time. The U-14 team took a squad of over 20 players to Leicester with several boys making their debut for King’s. The team played a mature and intelligent brand of rugby working hard to ensure the player with the ball always had support. Man of the match was Will Boyle, a debutant who certainly did not disappoint. His barnstorming display from the backrow epitomised an exquisite team performance.
