After winning the KLB Rugby 7s tournament before half term beating the hosts (10-7), Crypt (61-0), Churchdown (51-0), Bishops of Hereford (26-0) the U14s went to Prior Park full of confidence, but knowing this would be a tougher proposition.

First match up was Millfield and a totally committed display saw Wycliffe win 10-0 with tries from Will Naish and Harvey Rowland. Still delighted by this performance the team trailed 14-0 against Blundell’s after only a few minutes, but composed themselves quickly to level the score by half time and eventually win 28-14. There were then comfortable wins against Bristol QEH (43-10), Prior Park (50-0), Downside (45-5) and Bishop of Hereford (23-10) winning the group unbeaten in six matches.

The final was against Bromsgrove. This was a fast physical game that the team adjusted well to, but despite creating chances and defending well, they trailed 14-7 at half time. The second half was similar with both sides competing well. However, Bromsgrove managed to extend their lead to win 26-12.

Despite finishing runners up in the tournament, this was a wonderful performance from the whole squad and a thoroughly deserved achievement in a tournament with fourteen other schools and with some dominant rugby being played.
