The U14 side had prepared well for their National Schools Sevens tournament, with the initial goal of qualifying for the second day. Despite facing some big schools, they made this look an easy task winning all four games and scoring 152 points whilst conceding only 26. Wins were against Epsom College 24-7, Portsmouth Grammar 31-14, University College School 59-5 and Brynteg 40-0.

The second day started with an elimination game against Dulwich College, one of the other twenty four group winners from the previous day. This match would decide whether teams played for the Cup or the Plate. Despite starting well, Dulwich proved tough opponents and a narrow defeat 17-24 put the team in the Plate.

Schools were drawn into four groups each consisting of three teams. These two matches would decide the four semi-finalists. A commanding performance against Guildford RGS, wining 28-7 followed by a satisfying and thoroughly deserved 20-7 win against Cheltenham College meant the squad were playing in the National School Sevens Plate semi-final.

This match was against Marlborough College and again Wycliffe started well and were always in contention for a place in the final. However, despite late pressure and a few opportunities, the squad’s incredible performance in this tournament unfortunately came to an end.

The whole squad should be extremely proud of their significant achievements in this National tournament.

Well done!
