Senior Sevens at Reigate Charity 7s
The Sunday before last, the Senior Seven competed in the Reigate Charity 7’s. This is a high quality, invitation only, seven-a-side tournament with some of the best sides in country taking part. In RHS’ group were Dulwich College (Nat West semi-finalists) and KCS Wimbledon. The team played well but they were not strong enough to make it through the group and went on to compete for the Bowl. A fantastic four tries to nil win against Christ’s Hospital, in the quarter-final was the highlight of the day but sadly, a defeat against a strong Judd side in the semi-final saw RHS depart the competition.
