1st XV Success

1st XV Success

The 1st XV have got off to a flying start to the season. After an excellent pre-season camp in Exeter in August (where the boys watched the Exeter Chiefs train) the boys had a useful pre-season hit out at Hurstpierpoint where comfortable fixtures were recorded against Reigate GS and CLFS.

Excited by the new playing system that has been introduced by new Head of Rugby, Wade Kelly, the boys have been superb in training and that was rewarded with a superb 33-0 victory over KCS, Wimbledon in the first block fixture. This was followed by excellent wins against King’s, Canterbury (31-20) and Shiplake College (46-5). These comfortable victories against strong schools have got the world of schoolboy rugby talking and the Caterham team were named in the Fifteen Rugby’s ‘Top 5 Schools of the Week’ last week alongside the likes of Sedbergh and Wellington.

As if further evidence of this side’s potential were needed, it came on Wednesday with a comprehensive 50-7 victory over George Abbot School in the first round of the National Cup. Congratulations to all of the players involved.

If you would like to support the 1st XV, their next three games are: 

Saturday 29 September v Christ’s Hospital, 2.30 KO on Home Field
