The Bedford School Colts seven reached the quarter finals
of the Rosslyn Park National Schools Sevens on Wednesday 25th March.
First day group wins over St Joseph’s Ipswich, City of
London Freeman’s, Gwyr and Stockport GS resulted in a tough play off game
against Whitgift. A 29-7 victory meant a return journey to face Bromsgrove in
the last 16. After going 17-0 down, four second half tries set up a 24-17 win
and a quarter final against local rivals, Stowe. In a match that could have
gone either way, Stowe took their chances well and prevailed 19-14.
To reach the last 8 of a tournament with 167 schools is a
great credit to all the boys in the squad and coach, Mr Ingle.
