Form I Rugby Sevens Squad Wins Tournament

On a very wet morning at Stewart’s Melville College in Edinburgh, the Form I rugby 7s squad emerged as the very convincing winners of the Super 7’s Series.

The team successfully beat all three sides in their group stage—St Aloysius’ College, George Heriot’s School and Stewart’s Melville College—before going on to beat Edinburgh Academy in the semi-final match (3-1). They took on Glasgow Academy in the final and, in that final and most important match, the young athletes sustained their level of play and defeated the opposition, 5-0.

‘Despite the rain,’ said Mr Frost (PE teacher and rugby coach), ‘the boys tackled relentlessly, turned over ball, counter-attacked and found space most effectively, ultimately proving too strong for their opponents.’

This victory was all the more impressive performance given the immensely difficult conditions, and ‘the boys were a credit to Dollar both in their commitment and sportsmanship,’ commented Mr Frost.
