Congratulations to Oakham rugby players this weekend with Form 7 student Sam taking part in the Welsh U20 side of the Six Nations championship and our School team winning the Trent 10s U18 tournament.
The U18 squad had an excellent tournament despite the exceptionally cold weather, beating The King’s School, Worcester in the semi-finals and Stamford in the finals (12-7).
Director of Rugby said, “The matches were close but the boys performed brilliantly and coped well under pressure. They are now looking forward to the Rugby Sevens tournament in March. It is also fantastic to see Sam progressing his rugby with the Welsh U20 squad in the Six Nations and gaining valuable international experience. ”
Rugby is a much loved part of life at Oakham and several of Oakham’s Rugby aficionados have given us their predictions and thoughts regarding this year’s senior Six Nations Tournament including OOs Lewis Moody and Hamish Watson. To view our expert panel’s pick of winners click here.
