Priory rugby match live on the internet
Priory Community School’s Under-15 rugby team take on Kingswood in the regional semi-final of the Daily Mail Cup.
PRIORY Community School have never had such a successful rugby team as their present Year 10 team.
In recent years they have won two West of England state school cups and came runners-up in the South West state school finals day.
The side have a core of talented players. Hooker Curtis Langdon is outstanding in set pieces and a threat all-round the pitch, Caulfield, Swain and Sage are undoubtedly the best back row in the county, with Josh Caulfield already making his mark in the county set up a year early.
The backs are full of pace with good handling skills. Matt Cates and Kieran Manning form a strong half-back partnership, with Tom Davison and Byron Marriott constantly giving the side a great platform to attack from. The quality of the back three of Alex Parslow, Tom Easterby and Jacob Swain is also something to admire.
