More than 250 young rugby players descended on Sibford School near Banbury in March for the annual Sibford Rugby Sevens.
Now in its 14th year, the event, which up until now has been held over a single day, has grown in stature and this year took place over a three-day period with knock-out competitions for Under 12s, Under 15s and Under 16s.
And, to add further prestige, the school was delighted to welcome David Choules, Independent Schools Programme Officer for London Wasps, as guest referee.
Richard Ferley of Sibford School PE department said: “This year’s Sevens event was a terrific success and we were delighted that David was able to join us.
“Having been a former member of the London Irish Academy and a Bath United player he was able to offer both our players, and those pupils who helped run the line, a lot of inspiration.”
Results were: Under 12 Cup Winners - Cheltenham College; Plate Winners - Akeley Wood School. Under 15 Cup Winners - Akeley Wood School; Plate Winners – Cotswold School. Under 16 Cup Winners - Royal Latin School; Plate Winners - Warwick School B.
