Our U15A rugby team beat a strong Brighton College team in the last 16 of the National Cup last night.

Winning 39-5, the team are now through to the National Cup quarter finals, making them one of the best eight teams in the country.

Ian Kench, Director of Rugby, provided this report: “A Josh Bellamy penalty opened the scoring to make the score 3-0. Zac McCulloch then capitalised on a strong defensive start to the game, scoring in the corner. Shortly after the forwards continued to enhance their reputation with an emphatic maul try. The scoring continued through the forwards with a Henry Molyneux dart over the line from close range. At half time, Trinity were leading 24-0. Brighton started the second half as the stronger of the two teams making a big bust only for William Peart-Smith to stop a certain try. It was Trinity’s turn to attack and multiple phases, with all players inter-linking, saw Sam Medcraft dot down in the corner. Brighton then responded to give the visitor’s hope at 29-5. A raft of changes saw fresh energy injected into the match and Trinity quickly capitalised with a fine finish from Fin Kennedy. The last score of the match went to Trinity again with winger Aaron Fakorede dotting down in the corner.”

The team will find out their opposition on Friday 17 January and we wish them all the best for the next round!
