The Bedford School 1st VII wrapped up an incredible sevens season with a finals place in the Rosslyn Park National Schools Sevens on Thursday 17th March 2016.
The squad faced a tough group stage which included Bristol Grammar, Lord Wandsworth College and Seaford College. However, the boys put in some brilliant performances, including a highly impressive 31-0 semi-final win over Bishop Wordsworth’s, to top their group and earn their place against Tonbridge in the final.
Tonbridge got off to a great early lead (26-0) but a determined Bedford side pulled back a couple of tries. Unfortunately, this was not enough to regain the lead, and the match finished 26-10.
The boys should be justly proud of their superb final spot and their superb season. It has been a pleasure to watch a season of truly scintillating sevens.
