Another county title for Kings of Wessex

THE Year 10 rugby boys doubled up on the silverware for Kings of Wessex with their second Somerset Cup in two years after a scintillating performance against West Somerset Community College.

THE Year 10 rugby boys doubled up on the silver-ware for Kings with their second Somerset Cup in two years after a scintillating performance against West Somerset Community College.

From the start the team piled huge amounts of pressure on West Somerset, which was telling as captain Harri Sheppard scooped up a loose ball and ran unopposed under the posts. For the rest of the half, Kings dominated with slick handling and great support running led to more tries, going into half-time 31-3 up.

Yet, fair play to West Somerset, with Kings down to 14 men early in the second half, they took advantage, running in two quick tries. Once Kings had the full compliment back on the pitch, however, there was only ever going to be one winner as they scored twice more though great moves in the backs, making the final score The Kings of Wessex 45, West Somerset College 15.

Headteacher Chris Richardson said: "Following the success of our Year 9 team, this is a tremendous achievement for our Year 10 boys also to win the Somerset County Cup for the second year. I congratulate the boys and also thank our teacher of Physics Jonny Friend for his expert coaching.
