Reigate Charity 7s 2017
Tonbridge and Wellington Rain* Supreme
On Sunday 5 March 2017 over 40 schools descended on RGS Hartswood for the established annual Reigate Charity 7s, sponsored by John Laing. Despite some of the worst rugby conditions you could possibly imagine for sevens, the overall standard of rugby was magnificent.
In the boys Cup Final, Epsom College faced previous winners Tonbridge in a tense and exciting game and it was the black and white of Tonbridge that showed their experience and class to come out on top with an attritional 12-7 victory. Meanwhile in the Plate, Caterham dispatched a combative Wallington side beating them 17-12.
In the Girls’ tournament, Cup Final newcomers Wellington swept aside Wallington with a powerful 17-0 display and it was Christ’s Hospital who took home the Plate Trophy after a comprehensive 25-0 victory against King Henry VIII.
RGS had a mixed day with the boys losing to Sherborne in the Cup Quarter Finals 12-5 and the girls losing to eventual winners Wellington in the Cup Semi Final.
With heavy downpours throughout the day, our thanks go to all of our Hartswood groundstaff and volunteers who made the day pass without any hitches.
Kukri Players of the Tournament were awarded to:
Logan Didier (Epsom College) and Kathryn Rose (Wallington County Grammar School)
