A good midweek game for the U16As who travelled to Coopers. There was some good open rugby but the result was not in our favour this time at 13-12.

On Saturday over 140 boys represented the School in home matches versus Framlingham and Coopers Coborn.

The 3rd XV entertained Framlingham`s  international contingent. The team played some `festival`rugby  winning well 59-5. Fassamer once again on the score sheet eclipsed by the `rejuvenated ` Tom Lazenby who scored 4.

The U13B team lost 15-12 against Coopers . Tom Saunders having a powerful game in the second row.

The U13A team scored 8 unanswered tries in a 52-0 win over the visitors. Zac Puckey bagging a hat-trick and centre Elliot Rayment converting 6.

The U14B team won 10-5 in a well matched game. However the U14A team came up against a superb Coopers team and went down `heavily`.

The U15B team played some good passing rugby and won 38-5. Robert Cowper-Coles kicking for goal was a highlight.

The U15As lost 26-25 and lost defensive shape to allow Coopers some easy scores. Lock Ben Kelland’s try was a highlight in a game that RHS should have won.

The 2nds rallied well in the second half to finish  42-10. A hat-trick from scrum half Dan Jones and a superb solo try from wing Tom Precious sealed a comfortable win.

The 1st XV won 38-17. Tries from Richard Adderley, Josh Butt, Dan Smith and Rupert Powell and a length of the field interception from Ben Moore kept the RHS score board ticking. A debut from Piers Quinn was a highlight .A pleasing all round display with more to come in all departments and a first win against Coopers for 4 years.
