U14 Rugby Team Edged out in the Final of Sherborne Sevens

On Sunday the U14 rugby team, pictured, played in the 26th Sherborne School Sevens, acknowledged as one of the premier tournaments in England for this age group.

 

Victories over Blundells, Marlborough College, Portsmouth Grammar School, Cheltenham College and Sherborne School earned Truro an appearance in the final against our old rivals Whitgift School from London. Truro led 20-12 at half time and 25-19 going into the last play of the game before a Whitgift player made a break from his own goal line to score and earn a 26-25 win for the London side.

 

Truro played some exceptional rugby during the tournament and this cup final appearance adds to the school’s growing reputation as a force in regional and national level competitions.
