Bank Holiday Rugby

The May bank holiday weekend saw both St John's pupils and staff taking part in rugby competitions around the country.

Jack Potter (Lower Fifth, Montgomery) was part of the Harlequins U15 squad that took part in the southern Academies 12-a-side Festival. Harlequins finished the day unbeaten against Bath, London Irish, Exeter, Saracens and Gloucester. Jack was given the honour of captaining the side against Bath. A composite side from this event will train together under the guise of the RFU Performance Coaches later this month.

Bas Senior (Lower Sixth, Montgomery) and Joe Jelinek (Lower Sixth, West) travelled north with Cobham RFC to the home of Sale Sharks, the AJ Bell Stadium, to take part in the National U17 Shield title. The game was played against Barkers Butts, who were no match for a very strong opposition. Joe scored in the first half to contribute to the 66-0 final score.

Mr Roberts was assistant coach of the Samurai Barracudas (the Samurai National side) which won the Apache Maidenhead 7s. He assisted the England 7s Academy Coach with a strong line-up, including three England 7s players in the squad. Their final tally was points for 202, points against 19.

On Thursday night Mr Roberts will coach a charity side called SCRUM Smugglers at the Rosslyn Park Floodlight 7s. The line up includes Harlequins and Wasps amongst others.
