On the ball thanks to rugby performance programme
Trying paid off for Richard Huish College’s rugby team after it was propelled over the line into the last 32 of the Natwest Under 18s Cup for the first time.
The Somerset college’s team will now face Truro School, Cornwall, in a battle for a place in the last 16 of the competition for schools and colleges.
After successes in early rounds, Richard Huish continued its winning streak, beating Gryphon School, in Dorset, 22-18, Millfield School, in Somerset, 19-12 and Beechen Cliff, in Bath, 34–0.
A college spokesperson said the success stemmed from the quality of its rugby performance programme.
First team coach Chris Heal said: “It has been an exciting journey for the players, who have done exceptionally well to have got this far.”
