Victory at Sedbergh Tens Tournament

Sedbergh tens 2018

The end of term saw the 1st team rugby players enter the Sedbergh Super Tens tournament for the first time. Fourteen of the top teams in the country entered in what was a superb competition.

The group stages saw the school win two and lose two and progress to the Plate competition the next day.

Wins against Barnard Castle  and Abingdon put us into the final against Millfield school. Millfield have a massive reputation for sport, and we knew this would be a tough encounter. With scores tied at 24-24, the last play of the game saw Millfield on the attack, but an excellent tackle and interception, followed by a speculative kick through and chase, saw us touch down in the corner to win the game 29-24.

An excellent way to round off what was a very special week for St Peter’s rugby.
