Man of the Match Morgan inspires Saffron Walden

Essex school Saffron Walden won the U15 Bowl competition after a 19-10 victory over Worth school. 

Saffron Walden fly half Morgan Evans proved the key man, scoring 14 of his side's points in an impressive performance. 

His side made the perfect start when full back Matt Rumsey made use of an overlap to find his way to the try line. Evans converted to make it 7-0 after two minutes. 

Worth soon found their way into the game  and number 10 Joe Jones got his side's first points of the game with a penalty. 

Jones then put his side in the lead five minutes before half time, side-stepping his way through Saffron Walden's defence before converting his own try. 

It stayed at 10-7 until half time but Worth were unable to add to their points tally in the second half. Jones gifted his opposite number a try after 40 minutes when Evans intercepted a pass to score and he added his second try of the game in the final minute to make it 19-10 at the final whistle. 

Challoner's cruise to U15 Plate win 

Dr Challoner's became U15 Plate champions after comfortably beating Brighton College 29-7 in the final. 

The Buckinghamshire school made a sensational start, setting the tone for the match in the first 10 minutes. 

Centre Alex Bower put them in front after four minutes after slotting a penalty before Max Morphy scored his first try of the game following a Max Eggleton break. 

The moment of the first half came when Chris Grint broke from his own try line to score for Challoner's with Bower once again converting to make it 17-0 at half time. 

Moments into the second half Bower added a try of his own, which he converted to bring the score to 24-0 before Morphy scored his second of the game. 

Brighton replacement Aadil Rahim dotted down for a consolation try with 10 minutes left on the clock but it wasn't enough to stop Challoner's with the score finishing 29-7. 

Five-try St George's win Bowl 

St George's Weybridge scored five tries on their way to a 36-10 win over Samuel Whitbread Academy in the U18 Bowl. 

Second row Aidan Moran scored almost immediately for St George's after charging down a kick and then touching the ball down. Jamie Boden converted to make it 7 - 0. 

They extended their lead after 10 minutes, with Samuel Whitbread struggling to cope with their rolling maul as hooker Tom Williams dotted down. The rolling maul proved successful once again after 23 minutes with the school awarded a penalty try.

St George's fourth try came early in the second half when Sam Riley created the space for James Martin to score in the corner before Tom Mason collected a cross-field kick to score their fifth. 


Samuel Whitbread had something of a late resurgence in the last 20 minutes, scoring twice through replacements Pierce Holland and Bryce Smith but it was too little too late with St George's finishing 36-10 winners.

Woodhouse Grove win seven-try thriller 

Woodhouse Grove stormed to the U18 Plate title with a 36-14 win over Trinity in a well-contested final. 

The Croydon school got off to a tricky start when hooker Joseph Casey was sent to the sin bin for a deliberate knock on from which Woodhouse Grove were also awarded a penalty try.

The Yorkshire school made use of the extra man when prop James Whitcombe, a Leicester Tigers academy player, scored his first try of the game. Luke Punton added the conversion and then a penalty to make it 17-0 at half time. 

Woodhouse Grove picked up where they left off in the second half, scoring through Whitcombe once again with replacement Joe Person then adding a try of his own to give his side a 29-0 lead. 

There was some redemption for Trinity's Casey when he intercepted a pass to score his side's first points with 20 minutes left. Replacement Archie Warren converted to make it 29-7. 

But any hope of a comeback was extinguised by winger Joe Carpenter who finished off a sublime set piece move to touch down. 

A consolation effort from Trinity's Luke Medcraft with 10 minutes to spare narrowed the gap with the score 36-14 at the final whistle.
