Storming 7s rugby victory

In the final Wembley Sevens Series our Seniors finished mid-table and our Juniors finished at the top of their category.

In our Senior Final the score was 27 – 5 with the win going to Trinityhouse, Tinley Manor. The Senior series was won by Waterfall College. The senior squad played hard throughout the season.

The junior squad ended off a really good season with a victory over Reddam House, Umhlanga in the final. The score as the final whistle blew was 10 - 0. Both teams were really committed to practising. The final was a massive game, it was like facing the giants. Reddam beat Grace College easily during the league match and we made plans for a comeback which was well executed, our defensive strategy saved us in the first half and we were able to fight harder in the second to finish 10 – 0 up. The tackling was superb.
Tom Cornish, scrum-half, had a storming game and scored the first try. He charged down a kick, regathered and scored. Vuyo Zuma rounded off the win with a late try.

This was the first time Grace College put two teams on the field for the 7s rugby season, the B team being comprised of mainly Grade 8 boys.

Well done to all our rugby players.
