CHESHAM Grammar School’s U15s have booked themselves a third round tie in the RBS Daily Mail Cup after two superb shut-outs against local rivals.
First they demolished Dr Challoner’s Grammar School in the first round, 41-0 away, then they eased past Burnham Grammar School 38-0.
Tries came from Michael Moore, Ben Lane, JP Matyus-Flynn, Jamie Lloyd, Harvey James and George Wardle, with conversions landed by Ben Lane (3) and Nathan Chapman.
They meet Beaconsfield Secondary School or Parmiter’s School, Watford, at home in the next round on October 10.
The team’s head coach Thomas Mills said: “I am really pleased with the result and particularly another solid defensive effort to not concede any points.
“Each game the boys are playing with increased confidence and working harder as a team in both attack and defence. We are all looking forward to the challenge of testing ourselves against the best teams around as the competition continues.”
Having just received a Sport England grant for Rugby, Chesham Grammar School is putting the structure in place for rugby at the school to go from strength to strength.
Two new rugby pitches have been created, a scrummage machine has been acquired, and the school’s seniors can also call upon the services of two England Women’s rugby players, Rochelle Clark and Kat Merchant, as head coaches.
There has been a big increase in the number of boys now playing the game at the school.
