U15 Rugby Team reach Natwest Cup Quarter-Finals!


 The U15 Rugby team have reached the Quarter-Finals of the Natwest Cup for the first time in our school’s history with a hard found 20-14 victory over Crossley Heath School. The game looked as though it was over midway through the second half with Trent leading 15-0, but a series of injuries to both sides resulted in an error-strewn period that saw Crossley Heath score two converted tries to bring the game back to 15-14. The spirit shown by the boys in previous rounds came to the fore in the final ten minutes as Trent kept the game in the opposition 22m area. Eventually the pressure told when Chris Crick successfully chased his own charge down after an attempted clearance from a ruck, to make the score 20-14. Crossley Heath still only needed to score once but they were not given any opportunities to do so and the elation of the boys at the end of the game was there for all to see. The Quarter Final opponents are still unknown, it will either be Whitgift or New Hall, but whoever comes to Trent in early February will know that they have a fight on their hands.

The 1st XV have also continued to make excellent progress in the U18 Vase, reaching the last 16 after a 19-10 victory over Hereford Sixth Form College. They too are making history and have a home tie in the next round. Their opponents are still unknown, but it will be either Gresham’s or Hills Road Sixth Form College.

Will Allman and James Fish both continue to impress for Saints Academy and in their respective England age groups. There both scored in a comfortable 37-3 win against Newcastle Falcons and they now lie 2nd in the Table. They will hopefully both figure in the up and coming International programme, for which we wish them both well.
