Stamford named top 5 school rugby team
Stamford has been named in the top five school teams of last weekend by Fifteen rugby after a nail-biting match against Rugby School on Saturday. With Rugby arriving to Stamford unbeaten this season it was sure to be a tense match and after the first ten minutes the home team were left 0-14 down. The next seventy minutes was ‘the schools rugby equivalent of the New Zealand vs Ireland match’ with Stamford fighting hard for every inch of ground. The fact that Stamford ended the game with a 32-21 win was a remarkable achievement after coming back from 0-14.
A Stamford supporter and parent, Mr Jones, commented: “As the teams shook hands and even hugged after the game you could only reflect that the real winner was the sport of Rugby.”
Stamford’s next match is on Saturday 24th November away at St Alban’s School.
