Rugby 7s: Under 18s Retain Kent Cup

On Wednesday 6 March, the Under 18’s Rugby team returned to Gravesend thoroughly determined to retain the title of Kent Rugby 7s Champions. The team were put in an extremely tough pool which contained last year’s finalists – Maidstone Grammar School – Ravens Wood School (who had won all of their games at our festival the previous week), Langley Park School and The King’s School, Canterbury. The boys were superb in all the games and gave the opposition no chance in any of the fixtures. The recurring theme of the day was how good Eltham’s defence was at pressurising the opposition and giving them no space to play.  Coming through the pool unbeaten, the team went on to defeat Tunbridge School in the semi final and Sir Joseph Williamson’s Mathematical School in the Final 32-7.
