Excellent achievement in rugby
On Sunday, 29th January, Blue Coat’s rugby 7s team won the Vase in the Seaford College 7s Tournament – the team’s first ever outing in a 7s competition. The tournament involved 16 schools in four groups, with three games in each group and then two knockout games. In the Vase final, Blue Coat defeated Ardingly College 12-7, with a try by Josh Smart in the dying minutes of the game.
The day before the tournament, Josh (who is in Year 11) and Year 12 Jamie Henson both had their debuts for London Irish U18s against Saracens. A most impressive achievement.
