Congratulations to Dan Smith on his selection for the Midlands Independent Schools U18 Lambs side to play The North after Christmas.
Midweek the U16Bs played St. Felix 1st XV. In a `try fest’ the B’s ran out deserved winners 47-33 and finished their season unbeaten against other B teams.
Tuesday 3 December
There was an international flavour to two other senior games on Tuesday as RHS hosted a visiting school from South Africa, Bredasdorp High School, Cape Town. Before the game both teams lined up for their respective national anthems.
The U16s played very well to dominate the first half but then let the visitors back into the game finishing with a deserved 29-29 draw.
The senior squad played very well and won 31-7. Countering the physicality of the visitors, RHS demonstrated some fast flowing attacking rugby. Toby Eaton performed well on the wing and hooker, George Butt, was seemingly everywhere.

At home the U12s won one and lost one against Wymondham. Away, the U13s found the going tough and could not stop Wymondham’s key outstanding players in either the A or B matches. John Wells was man-of-the-match in the A game.
Against Framlingham the U14sboth lost in poor games. The A team 12-0 and the Bs 27-15. A disappointing end to a good season for the A team.
The U15s overwhelmed Framlingham at B level by 70 points. Rouxhan De Nysschen was man of the match and was led off the field on the shoulders of his team mates as he leaves for South Africa this weekend.
The A team also won 43-22. Fly half Toby Buckland running the show.
The U16A cruised past Framlingham with a score of 31-15 despite having several players missing. The team ended the season on a real high!
The 3rds completed the double over Framlingham wining 26-12 and a pleasing end to their season.
At the top, the exploits of midweek seemed to have taken its toll and the 2nds stuttered to a 12-10 loss and with some missed chances.
The 1st also finished disappointingly. A loss 29-21 to the visitors was a tough way to finish what has been a successful season.
